Merit Scholarship Program for High School Students
This program reflects our values as a Friends educational community and will be awarded to students who demonstrate academic excellence, extraordinary character, and community involvement.
Three Scholarships will be awarded each year: one scholarship is awarded to a student new to NGFS (preference is given to those entering the ninth grade) and two scholarships are awarded to current NGFS students.
Merit scholarship awards are $10,000 each year for four years. Scholarships may be combined with need-based financial aid. (Total award may not exceed 100% of yearly tuition.)

If you are already accepted, please complete the Merit Scholarship Application for new students. The scholarship application deadline for new students is May 1, 2018.
