Need-Based Financial Aid

At Nichols, we have a strong desire to serve all students and their families who can benefit from our program. The financial aid program is need-based. We encourage families with concerns about affording a Nichols education to inquire about financial assistance or to attend one of our Financial Aid Informational sessions held in the fall each year. Please click here for information on how to apply for financial aid


Named Scholarships
Merit and athletic scholarships are not available at Nichols School. All financial aid is need-based, including Named Scholarships, which are funds established by alumni and friends to support our financial aid program.

Four of these Named Scholarships require that an additional application from the student be completed for consideration. Please click on the following Named Scholarships for more information on how to apply.
