The Quincy Adams Scholarship is awarded to students who enroll at Woodward and reside in Quincy, Massachusetts in honor of President Adams and the Adams family. Applicants must provide proof of Quincy residency at the time of their application for each school year. There is no fee to apply for this scholarship.

Other Scholarships

The Woodward School awards scholarships to students who are eligible for financial aid. Individual awards range in value, depending on the student's financial need and other criteria.  The Scholarship Awards are funded by generous gifts of Woodward benefactors. Without this support from alumnae and friends of the School, Woodward would not be able to continue to meet the full financial need of all of our aid applicants. Named Woodward scholarships are given to students who are eligible for financial assistance and who meet the additional selection preferences specific by donors.  Students apply for Woodward scholarships by completing the student application for need-based financial aid.
