Scholarships

One arm of the School's financial assistance program are scholarships. A scholarship is a “merit-based” financial award offered to support a student to further their education. Scholarship awards are determined on “merit,” academic ability, or other factors outlined specifically for each award. These awards will be highly competitive and are often highly targeted toward applicants with specific talents, abilities or who reside in a particular geographic region. All suitable candidates are encouraged to apply but should review the award criteria and the supplementary application details carefully. You may review available scholarships awards below.
