Each year Molloy offers academic and named scholarships valued at over $1.3 million!

Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships will be awarded to applicants based on their grades and standardized test scores earned in 6th, 7th, and 8th Grades, and their Catholic High School Admission entrance exam score (the top 1-2% on the TACHS exam).  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. TACHS Applicant Record forms may be accessed on

Named Scholarships

There are several Named Scholarships awarded each year. These scholarships are designed to help mostly those who demonstrate financial need, though all are welcome to apply, and who have a B average (3.0) or higher in the core subjects (ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies).

A select few of these Named Scholarships honor firefighters lost during the World Trade Center attacks. Immediate relatives (children, grandchildren) of current, retired, or deceased firefighters are highly encouraged to apply for a Named Scholarship. *Note: If you are not a relative of an FDNY firefighter, you can still apply for a Named Scholarship whose criteria does not specify that.

Submitting Your Application
Applicant, please download and print two copies of the above recommendation forms and give to your two recommenders. Please ask recommenders to complete this form and have them email it from an official school/organization email address to [email protected]. Alternatively, please have recommenders fill in the form, sign it, place it in a school or official envelope, sign it over the seal, and mail the form to: Archbishop Molloy High School, Attn: Admissions 83-53 Manton Street Briarwood, NY 11435.
Please remind recommenders to list financial issues or circumstances that would strengthen why you should be awarded a Named Scholarship. An example would be dire financial need, though not all scholarships are limited to that. *Ensure that if you are applying for a specific Named Scholarship, they do not give a general explanation but one that is specific to this scholarship.
