Hathaway Brown Merit Awards

In honor of our trailblazing founders, and in continued appreciation for all of the girls who make Hathaway Brown School a vibrant and diverse community, HB is pleased to offer two types of Merit Awards for students entering Ninth Grade who display strong character, leadership qualities and commitment to the community, in addition to strong academic promise.

Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, the following awards will be made available:

FOUNDERS SCHOLAR AWARDS

Five awards in the amount of $15,000 will be granted to students entering HB in Ninth Grade who are new to the school community or who are matriculating from HB Middle School. Five individual Founders Scholar awards will be given each year and the determination will be made based on a number of factors, including the student’s unique interests and demonstrated commitment to the ideals embodied by Hathaway Brown’s Five Founding Sisters. Consideration for these awards also will include a review of the student’s academic transcript, Independent School Entrance Exam score, essay response, and teacher recommendations.

TRAILBLAZER AWARDS

Offered in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, Trailblazer Awards are designated for students entering HB in Ninth Grade who are new to the school community or who are matriculating from HB Middle School. A variable number of awards will be given each year, and the determination will be made based on a number of factors, including the student’s unique interests and commitment to making a positive contribution to HB life and promotion of the school’s core values. Consideration for these awards also will include a review of the student’s academic transcript, Independent School Entrance Exam score, essay response, and teacher recommendations.

A Merit Awards committee reviews applications for all eligible entrants and these scholarship opportunities will be announced to families when acceptance offers are extended at the end of the admission process. Application materials are available to all new students during the admission process and are available to current Eighth Grade students in January of each year.
