Each year Molloy offers academic and named scholarships valued at over $1.2 million!
Academic Scholarships will be awarded to applicants based on their grades and standardized test scores earned in 6th, 7th and 8th Grades, and the Catholic High School Admission entrance exam score TACHS or CHSEE. In order to be considered for an academic scholarship, completed TACHS Applicant Records with the 6th, 7th and 8th grade marks must be submitted by the applicant’s current school by December 15, 2017. TACHS Applicant Record forms may be accessed on www.tachsinfo.com. CHSEE applicants must have their schools send the 6th, 7th and 8th grade records by December 15, 2017.
There are a select few Named Scholarships (Need-Based Scholarships) awarded each year. Some special Named Scholarships honor firefighters lost during the World Trade Center attacks. Immediate relatives of current, retired, or deceased firefighters are highly encouraged to apply for a Named Scholarship. Preference is given to children and grandchildren of firefighters. For more information, please refer to the Named Scholarship pages below.
