Roycemore Offers Full Tuition Merit Scholarships through the Eisner Scholars Program: Application Deadline is Nov. 16th

November 05, 2020 2:35 PM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)

Do you have a child in your life with unbridled potential and a keen love for learning? Have their past experiences with school not given them the resources and attention to help them flourish? A small school could be the answer. By providing more one on one interactions and community building in the classroom, students build important relationships and grow. New Eisner Scholar Sierra talks about her experience with a small school, "Roycemore has provided many new opportunities for me especially because of the smaller class sizes. I know this is said very often in favor of this school, but the teachers know you as an individual. It helps them understand you as a person and what you need, and your teachers can choose different focuses of the curriculum to better suit the class." Roycemore values creating opportunities for every student to reach their full potential and have access to the education they deserve. Helping to make this possible are financial aid options for both current and applying students.

One of the school's most comprehensive financial aid opportunities is the Robert Eisner Distinguished Scholar Program, a full tuition merit scholarship program which can be renewed for all subsequent years of a student's time at Roycemore. Each year, at least one Eisner Scholar is awarded to a rising 9th or 10th grade student based on a number of factors. The selection committee looks at academic achievement, social justice and civic engagement work, and leadership abilities to find students who will enrich the school environment. Scholarships are renewed each subsequent year, so long as the student maintains a 3.0 grade point average and contributes positively to the school.

Eisner scholars can truly be any student, as Director of Admissions Amanda Avery tells us: "An Eisner scholar isn't always the loudest, most outgoing student in the room. Oftentimes, Eisner Scholars have unique passions that they demonstrate to us that make them standout students. And no matter what, we see kind, determined, and intelligent students receive the scholarship every year."

If you are interested in applying for the Eisner Scholar Program at Roycemore, please feel free to reach out with any questions. The Application Deadline will close on Monday, November 16th.
