Major Scholarships for Upper School Students

Merit Scholarships for Students Entering 7th through 11th Grades

Merit scholarships are awarded to students entering 7th grade, 8th grade, 9th grade, 10th grade, or 11th grade who are new to USM. These partial scholarships are awarded to students with outstanding academic records and the potential to contribute to the school in meaningful ways. There is no formal application for these scholarships; the credentials of an applicant’s admission application are reviewed as part of the award process. Scholarships are awarded on a limited basis and, if awarded, will be communicated to the family when a student is admitted to USM. Scholarship recipients will be required to provide regular updates about their academic and extracurricular progress.

Endowed Scholarships

Dating back to its predecessor schools, USM offers a variety of endowed partial scholarships. To qualify for one of these scholarships, a family must demonstrate financial need by completing the FAST application and meet the specific criteria of an endowed scholarship fund. Families who are awarded one of these scholarships will be notified by the Enrollment Management office. Scholarship recipients will be required to provide regular updates about their academic and extracurricular progress.
