Scholarship Program For Rising 6th Graders
The Canterbury Scholarship Program is for rising 6th graders who are high-achieving, minority students who would not be able to afford the cost of Canterbury’s tuition without significant aid. The scholarship awards 95 percent of the cost of tuition, the use of a laptop computer, and funds for extra school expenses such as field trips and tutoring. Two scholarships are awarded each year to minority students entering 6th grade. Combined annual income of a recipient family is typically $65,000 or less.
The application deadline is in the spring. Canterbury must have a complete application file, with all supporting documents, by the deadline.
To be considered for the scholarship, candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Be a rising 6th grader
- Grades of B+ or better on the last two years’ report cards
- Excellent record of behavior/citizenship
- Score among the top 15 percent on a national standardized test. (The Cognitive Abilities test [CogAT] is given to all 3rd graders enrolled in public schools, but other test scores will be accepted) OR have a score of four on one or more End-of-Grade exams.
- Combined family income of approximately $65,000 or below
