In an effort to recognize high achieving students, Providence Country Day School has launched a new scholarship program that grants financial awards for academic and extracurricular achievements. Students applying for the fall of 2019 can now qualify for a series of four new scholarships awarded to top students for academic achievement, extracurriculars, community service, and leadership. Under the new scholarship structure, more new students will be eligible for awards valued between $5,000 and $18,000.
"The new Red and Black Scholarships are another way for us to recognize the talented and diverse students that come to Providence Country Day School," said Melanie Parsons, director of admissions and financial aid. "In addition to high academic achievement, PCD is committed to attracting and supporting students that demonstrate our core values of engaged citizenship, character, community, and intellectual curiosity. Through the new scholarships, we can cultivate the future student leaders of our unique school community while recognizing that families need to think about affordability in considering a school."
Beginning in the current application cycle, prospective students can apply for the following four new Red and Black scholarships:
- 1923 Scholarship – the 1923 Scholarship is awarded to students applying for admission to grade six or nine. A 1923 Scholar candidate demonstrates consistent academic excellence, strong character, commitment to extracurricular, club, and/or community service activities, and a capacity to contribute as an engaged citizen at PCD. Candidates will demonstrate a commitment to academic achievement and excellence as reflected in classroom grades, teacher comments, and standardized test scores.
- 1991 Scholarship – the 1991 Scholarship is awarded to female students in recognition of PCD's commitment to co-education. A qualified candidate will demonstrate significant leadership potential, as well as achievement in one or more of the following areas: academics, arts, extracurriculars, and citizenship.
- Core Values Scholarship – the Core Values Scholarship is awarded to students whose applications reflect excellence and commitment in one or more of PCD's core values: commitment and participation, diversity, hard work, honesty, intellectual curiosity, respect, and team work. All applicants for the 2019-2020 academic year are automatically considered for the Core Values award.
- Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship – The Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship is awarded to applicants who best display the qualities of a PCD student and whose artistic, musical, or theatrical talents would enrich the school community.
