The University School Merit Scholarship Program provides 5th, 6th, 7th grade, or 8th grade students who are new to University School the possibility of attending as merit scholars. The Scholarship Committee selects recipients on the basis of scholarship test scores, recommendations, past academic record (including behavior and attendance), and a personal interview.
These partial-tuition scholarships are renewable each year through the 8th grade, provided the student performs well academically and is a positive contributing member of the University School community.
