Scholarship and Award Opportunities at The Independent Day School
IDS Scholarship recipients will be selected based on the following criteria: good citizenship, outstanding pattern of academic achievement, strong testing (OLSAT) and evidence of community involvement. Any prospective student is eligible and encouraged to apply. New students are only eligible to receive one IDS Middle School Scholarship and will maintain their award for their years in Middle School at IDS as long as their grades and citizenship continue to meet the criteria.
*IDS scholarship recipients can also be considered for need-based financial assistance in addition to the merit funding. If need-based financial assistance is requested, the applicant’s family must complete the FACTS application which will aid the Financial Assistance Committee in understanding the family’s situation. Because this scholarship is based on merit, the amount of the merit scholarship will not change in the event that need-based financial assistance is also awarded.
