Future Leaders Scholarship

It is with great anticipation that we announce the renewal and expansion of the Future Leaders Scholarship Program. The program is a merit-based scholarship competition with three tiers of awards for students entering the sixth grade.

  • Lead Scholars (75% of tuition) – up to two students
  • Trustee Scholars (50% of tuition) – up to four students
  • Head of School Scholars (25% of tuition) – up to six students

We are looking for talented sixth-grade students who are thinkers, communicators, and emerging leaders – the kind of students that make a difference in the life of the school.

Award winners who remain in good standing academically and behaviorally will maintain their scholarship through graduation from Episcopal Day School.

All participating students, whether current students or prospective students, will submit application materials including testing and teacher recommendations. Finalists will participate in a competition day on Saturday, April 15, which will be a fun-filled morning that will give each student an opportunity to shine. Award winners will be notified on April 21.
