Scholarship and Financial Aid
Scholarship money is "free money" that does not typically need to be repaid. Most scholarships are awarded competitively and are based on need, merit (achievement in academics or another area such as athletics or music), or some combination of need and merit.
Local scholarships are offered and awarded in May of each year to Nonnewaug students at the NHS Local Scholarship Ceremony. For a complete list of scholarships please view the scholarship opportunities below.
Scholarship offerings are available to senior students graduating in June of 2016.
Please use the Scholarships Cover Letter unless otherwise specified, to apply for all scholarships. In addition, check criteria column for any supplemental information necessary. Scholarship applicants should follow instructions on the cover letter and instructions link below. Contact the NHS School Counseling office at 203-263-0253 with any questions.
