Benefits of The Coolidge Scholarship:

Everything a  college undergraduate needs are covered in this scholarship, tuition and room & board are all taken care of for all four years of study. There is even a stipend for books and school supplies! The total dollar amount provided varies from year to year but averages about $33,000 annually for a small number of selected scholars.

But this fellowship provides more than just a dollar amount, it is a relationship with the foundation over 4 years of study and hopefully continually lifelong!
