Named Scholarships

Due to the generosity of donors who have made gifts to our endowment that are restricted to financial aid, we are proud to offer a number of named scholarships to current students each year. These funds are only awarded to those who qualify for need-based financial aid and become part of a student’s overall package. Named scholarships are a valued tradition at Brimmer and May School.

Named Scholarships Include:

List of 10 items.
