To qualify for the scholarship, high school students must have scores of "Advanced" and "Proficient" on grade 10 Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System tests in English Language Arts and mathematics, with at least one "Advanced" score, and combined scores on MCAS ELA and mathematics tests that place them in the top 25 percent of students in the graduating class in their district.
