Scholarship Opportunities

Hamilton Holt School Scholarship Program 

The Hamilton Holt School Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to qualified students who might otherwise be unable to pursue their education. Most awards are based on a combination of past academic achievement (a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average is required for consideration), leadership and service potential, and demonstrated financial need. The Scholarship Committee will determine eligibility based on the information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
