Local scholarships from sources within Dover and Sherborn are awarded prior to graduation at the Senior Awards Evening. Some of these scholarships are awarded based on information submitted by students in the form of an application, while others are awarded through a selection process undertaken by members of the high school’s Scholarship Committee. These scholarships are granted through the generosity of local individuals and organizations and the availability, criteria and dollar amounts are subject to change from year to year.
There are a number of scholarship opportunities for Dover-Sherborn seniors. Applications will be available on April 1st. Please connect with Carol Spezzano in the Guidance Office if you wish additional information or have any questions regarding the Dover-Sherborn Scholarships.
The Dover-Sherborn High School maintains a listing of a variety of generic scholarships that exist. This listing is housed in Naviance which students access through their individual student accounts.

The John and Abigail Adams Scholarship provides a tuition waiver for eight semesters of undergraduate education at a Massachusetts state college or university. The scholarship covers tuition only; fees and room and board are not included.
Each year students and their families are the targets of scholarship scam artists. Protect yourself from scholarship scams by becoming an educated consumer. Often scams using official sounding titles like “national,” “federal,” or “foundation” as part of their name and promise to find you scholarships or grants. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) suggests that you watch for these signs of a possible scam:
• The Scholarship is guaranteed or your money will be refunded.
• You cannot get this information anywhere else.
• We will do all the work for you.
• We just need your credit card, bank account number or social security number to secure the scholarship.
No one can guarantee you a scholarship. Students must apply for financial aid and scholarships themselves. For more information or to report a scam, please contact the FTC by calling 877-FTC-HELP.
