Each year, Olney Friends School offers scholarships to students whose background or circumstances warrant financial support from our institution. We currently offer five scholarships:
Quaker Scholarship: Available to students who actively attend Quaker meetings, Friends Music Camp, or a similarly affiliated club or activity. Students who have attended a Friends Council on Education member school should apply for the FCE Scholarship instead. If the student is an active member of a Friends meeting and has attended an FCE member school, then the student may apply for both.
Heritage Scholarship: Available to students with previous family connections to the school. These connections can include being a legacy (parents or grandparents attended) or having other family members (siblings, aunts/uncles, cousins) who were alumni, honorary alumni, or friends of the school.
Opportunity Scholarship: Available to students living in geographically and socioeconomically disadvantaged areas, or areas impacted by natural disasters.
NAIS Scholarship: Available to students who have attended or graduated, in good standing, from a National Association of Independent Schools member institution within the past two academic years.
FCE Scholarship: Available to students who have attended or graduated, in good standing, from a Friends Council on Education member institution within the past two academic years.
If you are ready to apply for a scholarship, please write a 200-500 word essay describing the following:
– Who are you?
– What personal qualities will you/do you bring to Olney?
– Why do you feel deserving of an award?
– How Olney can support you in your interests, growth, and success.
