We’re pleased to announce the creation of The Beekman School Scholarship, a new program offering each recipient 50 percent tuition remission for each year that he or she remains a student in good standing with a minimum 3.0 GPA. For students enrolled at Beekman for four years, this award will be worth more than $75,000 in tuition value.
The scholarship is designed to provide an opportunity for students to attend The Beekman School who may not have been able to do so otherwise. All new, incoming 9th and 10th grade students who earn a minimum 3.0 GPA during the current school year are eligible to apply.
To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must complete the online admission application and note “The Beekman School Scholarship” in the comments section. The following application documents must also be submitted via email to Headmaster George Higgins at email@example.com:
- One 500 word essay answering the question, “Other than academics, how do you plan to contribute to the Beekman community?”
- Most recent transcript from the current school year
- One letter of recommendation
Finalists and their parents will be contacted with regards to setting up an interview at the school as part of the application process for all prospective Beekman students and families. In addition to the standard admissions interview, finalists will discuss their essay, letter of recommendation and other award areas.
