Each year, Hingham High School is proud to be able to present over $350,000 in scholarships to our graduating class. We are very fortunate to be able to offer two different opportunities to receive scholarships:

“The Town of Hingham Scholarship Fund” consists of generous memorial donations from local residents and beloved family members.
These funds are provided through the permanent funding program that is managed by the Hingham Town Treasurer.

Outside Scholarships are available to our graduating class. These awards require separate applications and/or essays, and have different
deadlines and requirements. These scholarships are decided on by the individual scholarship.

As always, please reach out to your School Counselor for more information
