Awards and Scholarships for Mount Students

Recognizing the talents and initiative of Mount’s current students

Recognizing the accomplishments, initiative and talents of our students is essential. Each year, we invitemembers of our school community to request consideration for scholarships awarded at our spring ceremonies. 

Below is a list of the scholarships and honors we anticipate awarding this spring for students in grades 9, 10, or 11. All members of our school community are invited to review each descriptor carefully and to consider students who embody the attributes listed for each scholarship. Students are encouraged to read the descriptors and to put their name forth for consideration.  Links to submit names are included at the bottom of each section.

Once a student has been nominated for a scholarship, it is not necessary to submit a second nomination. Student names submitted will be put onto a ballot and the faculty/administration and scholarship committee will vote on award recipients. For questions regarding scholarships, please email
