68 Milford High School Students are Adams Scholars

The following students will qualify for free tuition at a state college or university because they are eligible for an Adams Scholarship.

Sixty-eight seniors at Milford High School are eligible for an Adams Scholarship, a state scholarship that will cover the cost of tuition for eight semesters at a state university or college.

The John and Abigail Adams Scholarship provides a tuition waiver for up to eight semesters of undergraduate education. The scholarship covers tuition only; fees and room and board are not included.

"Psssst. We forgot to tell you: At Massachusetts state schools, tuition is only a small nominal fee (under $900). The real cost is hidden in the 'Curriculum Fee' which is $9400/year." It's not their fault, they had to figure out some way to pay for Billy Bulger's pension.

At first I thought, oh, that can't be true milfordman. But a little search and, lo and behold, it is true. Oh well, at least it's a $900 a year break. Every bit counts, right?. Here is the UMass fee and tuition schedule: http://www.umass.edu/bursar/Full-Time%20Undergraduate%20Fees.pdf

Actually, it's $1800 a year, for two semesters. So, the award at UMass Amherst is worth about $7,200 over the four years. Anyway, an interesting arrangement. Usually the tuition is the lion's share of the bill at a college. First time I've seen this.

My son (a junior) also won this award. I was so excited that he received free tuition thinking we just got handed the lottery until I researched it to. Granted I am so proud of him and I am happy because, yes, every little bit counts....but the award is a little misleading.

Another little "glitch" in the system - the Adams Scholarships apply to all Massachusetts state colleges and univerisities except Mass College or Art and Design.
