ADAMS, Mass. —The John and Abigail Adams Scholarship is a merit-based program that provides credit towards tuition for up to eight semesters of undergraduate education at a Massachusetts state college or university.

For this scholarship, merit is based on student scores on the 10th-grade Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) test.

This year's recipients at Berkshire Arts & Technology (BArT) Charter Public School are Sheldon Alexander, Jacob Brown, Ivan Chen, Felee Davis, Isaac Huberdeau, Riley Jowett, Matthew Lizzo, Ranger McGinnis, Sawyer Moser, Ruby Pullaro-Clark, Ndey Touray, Matthew Weiskotten, and Giordan Zavatter.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must:

  • Score in the Advanced category on one of the three high school state assessment tests in ELA, Mathematics, or STE (Biology, Chemistry, Introductory Physics, or Technology/Engineering); and

  • Score in the Proficient or Advanced category on the remaining two high school state assessment tests; and

  • Have combined scores from the three tests that place them in the top 25 percent of students in the graduating class in their district. Students in charter schools are eligible for the scholarship if they meet the eligibility requirements for either the school they attend or the district in which they reside.

To continue receiving the Adams Scholarship, a student must

  • be enrolled full-time at a public higher education institution; and

  • maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 on all college work (The student loses eligibility for the waiver once the GPA drops below a 3.0 and cannot be reinstated. ); and

  • annually complete the FAFSA.
