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 eighth-grade 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 would like to apply for the NGFS Merit Scholarship:

  • Currently enrolled students - complete the Merit Scholarship application, essay, and submit supporting documents. The scholarship application deadline is January 31, 2020. Scholarship recipients will be announced on March 2, 2020.
  • Prospective students - New students must first complete the NGFS admissions process and be accepted for the school year. If you are already accepted, please complete the Merit Scholarship Application for new students. The scholarship application deadline for new students is May 1, 2020. Scholarship recipients will be announced on June 5, 2020.
