St. Andrew's Priory Merit Scholarship

The Priory Merit Scholarship is a half-tuition award for girls entering grades 6, 7, or 9 in the 2024-2025 school year. Current and prospective students are eligible to apply.
For Priory Merit Scholars, the scholarship renews in each subsequent year of enrollment as long as the student remains in good standing and continues to demonstrate the qualities of a Priory Merit Scholar. Students who have been awarded the Priory Merit Scholarship do not need to re-apply each year.

Multiple new scholarships will be awarded for the 2024-2025 school year. Additional scholarships may be awarded depending on the candidate pool and available financial resources.

Candidates should possess a desire to lead, with demonstrated leadership abilities, in addition to a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (or elementary equivalent) or higher. The review committee will take into consideration scholastic achievement, leadership, and extracurricular activities.
Demonstrated financial need is not a requirement for this scholarship. There are no income restrictions to apply. The scholarship will be applied as a tuition credit once the awarded student has enrolled for the 2024-2025 school year.
Need-based financial aid may be pursued in addition to the merit scholarship. If both are awarded, the total tuition assistance amount will not exceed a student's demonstrated financial need.



The following items must be submitted in order for the student to be considered for the Priory Merit Scholarship.
