The Montaigne Scholarship is awarded to new Shimer students on the basis of a competition hosted on campus at the college. Full and partial scholarships are offered through this competition. Students will be given an original text to read prior to the competition and then be judged on the basis of their writing on and discussion of that text at the competition itself.
