Ninety-three students from Beverly High School’s class of 2021 have been named eligible to receive the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship.
These students became eligible for the scholarship based on their performance on the grade 10 MCAS test. To qualify, a student must score “Advanced” on one exam and either “Proficient” or “Advanced” on the other, and rank within the top 25% of student MCAS scores in their district.
Adams Scholarship recipients receive free tuition at any Massachusetts public college or university. The tuition is renewable for eight consecutive semesters or four years. Recipients must begin to use the waiver in the first fall semester following their high school graduation, and must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better throughout the time of the waiver. The scholarship only covers the cost of tuition, fees are not included.
The Adams Scholarship is Massachusetts’ only merit-based tuition waiver program, and was established to help families pay for college, create an incentive for students to push themselves academically, and encourage them to pursue higher education in Massachusetts.
