McCabe Scholars

McCabe Scholars at the annual McCabe banquet in the Corinthian Yacht Club.


The McCabe Scholarship was established in 1952 by Thomas B. McCabe, Class of 1915. The McCabe Scholarship is available to two students from the Delmarva Peninsula, two students from Southeastern Pennsylvania (Chester, Montgomery, and Delaware counties), and to two students from the rest of the United States. These awards provide a an annual grant depending on financial need from a minimum annual grant of tuition or a maximum annual grant to cover tuition, fees, room, and board.

In addition, the McCabe Scholarship is available to one international student. This award meets the full demonstrated financial need of that student.

No interview or separate application is required for consideration for McCabe Scholarships. Rather, candidates are chosen from among those students who are admitted through the early or regular admissions process. Regional candidates are interviewed by the McCabe Scholar Selection Committee, which places emphasis on ability, character, personality, leadership, and service to school and community. National candidates are notified of their selection at the time of admission.
