Nantucket Scholars

The Nantucket Scholar Program is now in its 18th year.   The program requires a six-month long review process.  This year’s process began with an informational assembly in November at the high school.  Seniors and their parents are invited to a presentation and information sheets are available along with an opportunity to ask questions. This year, the application will be online and includes one written essay, sections for extra-curricular activities, community service and academic honors, one confidential teacher recommendation and an employer recommendation and are due in January 2024. 

The 2024 Selection Committee will be announced soon. 

Each applicant has varied and unique qualities. The Nantucket Scholar can be anyone with the determination and drive to succeed academically, be socially conscientious and a leader among their peers.
