Merit Scholarships

The Nichols School Trustee Scholars Program is designed to attract students who demonstrate strong character, outstanding academic achievement, intellectual curiosity, leadership qualities and enthusiasm for contributing to the School community.

Merit-based Trustee Scholar Awards (scholarships of $1,000 to $10,000/year) are awarded to students who have distinguished themselves as outstanding scholars and citizens. We require submission of supplemental materials to be considered for this recognition. All Trustee Scholar Awards are given for a specified term and the number of awards is limited. Each year, the number of awards offered, as well as the amount and term of the award, will depend upon the strength of the applications and on the composition of the applicant pool.

The deadline to apply for Trustee Scholar Awards for the 2021-22 school year has passed.
