The Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship

The Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship identifies exceptionally gifted middle school students who have demonstrated academic and personal excellence and awards them with a scholarship to the high school that best meets their academic and personal needs. Scholars receive a full, four-year scholarship covering the cost of tuition and books, as well as guidance in choosing an appropriate high school. The scholars become part of a peer network that provides them with the opportunity to communicate with and develop lifelong relationships with other motivated young people. To apply, a student must have achieved a score of 97% or higher in at least one of the major academic areas on a school administered nationally normed standardized test (such as Stanford 9, Iowa Test of Basic Skills) for at least the past two years. Applicants must also score as well as or better than the average college bound senior on the SAT-I reasoning test. Recommendations, nomination, work sample, essays, transcripts and other elements are also required. Eligible students must reside in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, DC, Washington State, or Wisconsin.
