Each year Molloy offers academic and named scholarships valued at over $1.2 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 by December 14, 2021. TACHS Applicant Record forms may be accessed on www.tachsinfo.com.
Named (Need-Based) Scholarships
There are several need-based Named Scholarships awarded each year. These scholarships are designed to help those who demonstrate financial need, and who have a B average (3.0) or higher in the core subjects (ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies). For a list of the Named Scholarships, click here
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.
