The Coolidge Scholarship is an annually awarded, full-ride, presidential scholarship that covers a student’s tuition, room, board, and required fees for four years of undergraduate study. The Coolidge Scholarship also provides an annual stipend for books and supplies.
This one-of-a-kind scholarship may be used at any Accredited American University. Anyone of any background, pursuing an academic discipline of study, may apply to this non-partisan, need-blind, program.
Students apply for the Coolidge Scholarship during their junior year of high school. Finalists are flown in for a finalist weekend at the Coolidge Historic Site in Plymouth Notch, Vermont where they interview with the Coolidge Scholars Finalist Jury, chaired by Dr. Bruce Cole, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Recipients of the Coolidge Scholarship are notified of their award in late May of their junior year, before college applications are due.
More information and online application are available at https://coolidgescholars.org/ or in the guidance office.
