Scholarship News

There are two types of financial assistance for college. The first type is FINANCIAL AID, a combination of scholarships, loans, and work granted if you demonstrate need for assistance.

The second type is MERIT SCHOLARSHIP, money given to you regardless of your financial need. Some merit scholarships are granted by foundations and can be used at any college. Many are granted by specific colleges to be used only at those colleges. Many target a specific type of student. Carefully read the descriptions to be sure you qualify.

Many scholarships require nominations by the school. For those scholarships, we ask you to nominate yourselves to us. Once we know who is interested, we will select the school’s nominee(s).

We also encourage you to register with, a free scholarship search device. Please feel free to stop by the College Counseling Office with any questions.


MEFA, the Massachusetts Financing Authority, maintains its own list of scholarships.
