Merit Based Grant

The Royal Fund is a new merit based grant awarded to students who have demonstrated academic, artistic, spiritual, leadership, or extracurricular excellence. The Royal Fund is renewable, so long as the recipient remains in good academic standing and demonstrates exemplary conduct. Each year, the recipient will be invited to meet with the Royal Fund committee. 

Students do not apply specifically for a Royal Fund grant. Based on the entirety of the admissions application, inclusive of all supplemental materials and admissions interview, each applicant is considered through a blind review process. 

The Royal Fund may be received in addition to financial aid.
