Convent of the Sacred Heart Merit Scholarship 

The Sacred Heart Scholarship is a partial merit scholarship awarded to young women who currently attend Catholic Parochial school. Students must show strong leadership and character and score in the 95th percentile or above on standardized testing. To be considered for the Sacred Heart Scholarship, students must be nominated by their 8th grade teacher or school principal. Additional financial aid is available to students who qualify. Information is sent out in the spring of 7th grade to all the Parochial schools in the surrounding area. 

Marymount School of New York’s Butler Scholar Program 

The Butler Scholar Program provides opportunities for academically gifted students with outstanding leadership potential and exemplary personal values to attend Marymount's Upper School. The program seeks to enrich its community by attracting a diverse student body from parochial schools and Catholic parishes in the greater metropolitan area.

In order to be eligible for the Butler Scholar test, students must be baptized Catholic or attend parochial schools. In addition, they must be nominated or approved by their school principal on the basis of their academic potential, leadership ability, and exemplary character. As this is a highly competitive process, we advise principals to approve students only if they are one of the top students of the seventh grade class. Butler Scholar candidates are nominated by their principals.
