Coolidge Scholarship

The Coolidge Scholarship is an annually awarded, full-ride, presidential scholarship that covers a student’s tuition, room, board, and expenses for four years of undergraduate study and leadership training.  The Coolidge may be used by recipients at any accredited American college or university.  Anyone of any background, pursuing any academic discipline of study, may apply to this non-partisan, need-blind, program.

Students apply for the Coolidge Scholarship during their junior year of high school.  Finalists are flown in for a finalist weekend at the Coolidge Historic Site in Plymouth Notch, Vermont where they interview with the Coolidge Scholars Finalist Jury, chaired by Dr. Bruce Cole, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Recipients of the Coolidge Scholarship are notified of their award in late May of their junior year, before college application (note: current high school seniors are not eligible to apply).

Applications must be received by:  7:00 PM EST, February 22, 2017
