2nd Annual Town Scholarship
Marvelwood School is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2020-2021 Town Scholarship. Available to a rising freshman or new sophomore day student, the winner of this prestigious merit-based award receives a full scholarship to attend Marvelwood, excluding fees associated with other programs such as learning support or equestrian. The award is renewable annually. Recipients are expected to demonstrate good citizenship and solid academic progress throughout their Marvelwood careers.
The Town Scholarship award recipient will be selected based on his or her potential to contribute to and benefit from the Marvelwood experience. The selection committee will also consider academic performance and citizenship. In addition to the regular admission requirements, applicants must submit a personal essay and a supplemental letter of recommendation that speaks to character.
“Day students bring their own particular vitality, talents, and diversity to our school,” says Head of School Blythe Everett P’14,’16. “At Marvelwood, there is little difference between a day student’s experience and the life of a boarding student. Day students are assigned a dorm room and are encouraged to participate in all facets of residential and extracurricular programming, and can be elected to positions of leadership on campus. We are thrilled to be able to offer young adults from the local area the opportunity to be recognized for the hard work they have devoted to their academic and personal growth, and to benefit from a full scholarship to join and contribute to our vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive school community.”
The Marvelwood Town Scholarship application deadline is February 1, 2021. Applicants do not need to reside in the town of Kent to be considered day students.
The recipient of our first Town Scholarship is Wyatt Lee ‘24 of Kent, a graduate of Washington Montessori School. In his first month at Marvelwood, Wyatt joined the newly formed DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) Board, and elected to the Student Government as a freshman class representative.
