The Goddard Merit Scholarship

The Les and Ellen Goddard Merit Scholarship


The Les and Ellen Goddard Merit Scholarship Program provides outstanding 6th and 9th Grade students the opportunity to attend Holland Hall as merit scholars. The Scholarship Committee selects recipients on the basis of entrance exam test scores, recommendations, grades from the candidate’s present school, and a personal interview.
