Tuition and Financial Aid

Bion R. Cram Scholarship

Fryeburg Academy is pleased to offer a scholarship opportunity for Maine and Northern New England residents. The scholarship, named for Bion R. Cram, class of 1933, covers tuition, along with room and board for a student from Maine and Northern New England. In addition to a full scholarship awarded to the Bion R. Cram Scholar, a number of partial scholarships will be awarded to qualified applicants.

Mr. Cram, who passed away in 2008, bequeathed 15 million dollars to the Academy to establish endowments for financial aid scholarships and academic resources. Born and raised in Maine, he attended Fryeburg Academy and Bowdoin College. Mr. Cram’s generosity provides young men and women from Maine the same opportunity presented to him those many years ago. He knew that it was the generosity of others that empowered him early on and the idea of always having choices stayed with him forever.
