Brockton High School Scholarship Program
Brockton High School Scholarship Program stands as a lasting tribute to many generous people, organizations and businesses who have made supporting our students in their quest of higher education a priority.
Each year, more than $50,000 in scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors pursuing a college education. In 2017, Brockton High School students have the opportunity to apply for 131 separate scholarship opportunities.
Scholarships are established in a variety of ways: some through bequests left in the form of trusts, fraternal and service clubs have granted others, while student organizations and caring individuals from our community have created other scholarship opportunities.
This outward generosity demonstrates a real commitment by our city to support the future of its children.
The time for applying for Scholarships has ended. Best wishes in your future endeavors!
