Upper School Merit Scholarships – 9th Grade
Louisville Collegiate School is excited to offer Upper School Merit Scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year. Merit Scholars will earn a financial award up to $5,000, which is renewable provided Scholars maintain strong academic performance, deep engagement in extracurricular activities, and outstanding character and citizenship. In addition to the ongoing financial award, ninth grade Scholars will participate in the MIT Splash program in Cambridge, Massachusetts in November 2017.
At Collegiate, our Merit Scholarship program is not just about a monetary award. It’s an experience. Recognition as a Collegiate Scholar is a highly selective honor that recognizes outstanding students based on:
- Superior academic achievement
- Outstanding character
- The potential for making a significant contribution to a citizen of Collegiate and the global community
The criteria used to determine the Collegiate Merit Scholars include:
- All students applying must take our entrance test
- Student Essay
- Academic Performance Review
- Teacher Evaluation/Recommendation
The Collegiate Scholars Experience embraces the four pillars of sustainability- Social, Environmental, Economic and Human. The experience is centered around human sustainability through diverse education and leadership experiences offered at the national and local levels. All new Collegiate Merit Scholars are celebrated at the Head of School Breakfast each Spring.
