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


All graduates of Hingham High School who have completed at least one full year of undergraduate study are welcome to apply for the Graduate Cobb Scholarship.

A portion of the funds given by Frank and Ellen Cobb are set aside each year to be awarded to past graduates of Hingham High School who are currently attending an institution of higher learning. All graduates of Hingham High School who have completed at least one full year of undergraduate study are welcome to apply for the Graduate Cobb Scholarships. Students who meet the above criteria are welcome to apply with the understanding that those students with larger financial need are given first consideration. Undergraduate students will also receive preference over graduate students. Thus, students in law school, medical school and other graduate programs are encouraged to apply with the understanding that undergraduate students will be given first priority.
