About the Alumni Scholarship
Each year the Seabury Hall Alumni Association (SHAA) awards “Rising Senior Scholarships” to current juniors. The purpose of the scholarship is to acknowledge, encourage, and reward juniors who have demonstrated leadership, fulfilled their academic potential, and served their community during their high school career. Since 1996 the Seabury Hall Alumni Association has awarded 65 scholarships to current Juniors, “Rising Seniors,” to help offset tuition expense in their Senior Year. In the first year of the scholarship, SHAA awarded one scholarships of $500.00. Since then, the awards have increased in number and amount, and in 2016 SHAA awarded $13,000 in Rising Senior Scholarships to six (6) qualified recipients who received from $1,000 to $3000 each. The amount and number of scholarships to be awarded is based on financial need. The award will be applied towards the student’s senior year tuition.
