John and Abigail Adams Scholarship ProgramBy far the best part of my job is when I inform a deserving student that they’ve won a scholarship from scholarshippoints.com, which is giving away over $100,000 in scholarship money this year. The reactions I’ve got through the years have been priceless. I’ve heard everything from, “Get the bleep out of here,” to “This must be a scam,” before hearing a dial tone.  I even had one grateful student begin sobbing uncontrollably before hyperventilating – I dueled as a 911 dispatch operator that day.

I champion any initiative that helps hard working students realize their dream of higher education, which is why I am such a huge supporter of the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship Program.

I just learned that my neighbor and friend Sam has become eligible for the Adams Scholarship program (pending full-time enrollment in a traditional academic semester following high school graduation and completion of her Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which is open to permanent Massachusetts residents.  A student must score in the advanced category in either the Mathematics or the English language arts section of the MCAS while holding a proficient or advanced standing in the second category.  Students who meet these requirement rank in the top 25% of their school district.

The scholarship is equal to the value of required tuition (not including fees) for all state-supported undergraduate courses.  The scholarship may be awarded for a maximum of four years or eight semesters of continued enrollment.  Students must also maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA to retain eligibility.

You’ve got the world at your finger tips.  The moment of enlightenment is when a persons dreams of possibilities become images of probabilities.  All that’s left is for you to make it a reality.

      It’s 4 years or eight semesters, not weeks. Generally there are two semesters per year pending the school which is why it is equivalent to 4 years / 8 semesters.
