Anyone of any background, pursuing any academic discipline of study, may apply to this non-partisan, need-blind, program ( STUDENT DOES NEED TO BE A US CITIZEN OR PERMANENT RESIDENT.)


Students apply for the Coolidge Scholarship during their junior year of high school.

Recipients of the Coolidge Scholarship are notified of their award late in their junior year, before college application (note: current high school seniors are not eligible to apply). Finalists who are not named Coolidge Scholars are eligible to receive a smaller, one-time, college scholarship."
