Congratulations, Class of 2024 Adams Scholars!

Eight-five Students Earn Option to Advance Career Training with Free Tuition – November 13, 2023 

Hard work and academic achievement of students, staff, and parents pays off for eighty-five Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School (BVT) seniors who are the proud recipients of a John and Abigail Adams Scholarship. These students have earned free tuition at any Massachusetts public college or university and may want to further their vocational and career training with additional education, advanced training, and credentials. 

The first-time score on a high school MCAS exam determines eligibility for an Adams Scholarship. Adams Scholars receive free tuition at any Massachusetts public college or university, renewable for eight consecutive semesters or four years. Recipients must use the tuition credit in the first fall semester following their high school graduation and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better.
