Prairie School offers merit scholarships to prospective students in grades 6-12. Candidates are selected, by invitation only, based upon the strength of their academic record, test scores and demonstrated financial need. If given the opportunity to compete for a scholarship, the student will be required to submit letters of recommendation, a portfolio of recent accomplishments, and will be scheduled for on-campus interviews with key faculty or administration.
HILPERT MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Funded by the School’s endowment and gifts from individual friends, this program awards multi-year scholarships in varying amounts to new and continuing Prairie students for the years they remain at the School.
The Hilpert Memorial Scholarship Program is an annual, competitive, merit-based, tuition scholarship program for motivated young people who exhibit academic and creative excellence, strong leadership skills, a concern for the well-being of others and demonstrate financial need.
IMOGENE POWERS JOHNSON LEADERSHIP FELLOWS PROGRAM
Established in May of 1997 through the generosity of the School’s founders, the Imogene Powers Johnson Leadership Fellows Program attracts the brightest, most-talented Upper School students. Ideally, these Fellows will emerge as strong, competent, cooperative, and magnetic leaders, who are models for the School’s ideals, setting a standard for others to emulate.
This program provides four $7,000 fellowships to students entering 9th grade who demonstrate financial need. Fellowships are renewable annually based on each fellow’s performance and typically follow a student through graduation.
