The IDS Merit Scholarship of up to $5,000 per academic year is awarded to new IDS students applying to Grades 6-8 and is renewable through to graduation, assuming that the student continues to thrive in the IDS environment by fulfilling academic and citizenship expectations. All prospective Middle School students are encouraged to apply for the IDS Merit Scholarship. Recipients are selected based on the following criteria: good citizenship, outstanding pattern of academic achievement, commitment to learning, and evidence of community engagement.
The Dr. Edward and Elizabeth Wallace Scholarship is awarded to one sixth grader in overall good standing for his or her three-year Middle School tenure. This scholarship of $6,000 per academic year is available to a student who demonstrates a passion for learning and discovery and whose family demonstrates substantial financial need.
*Scholarship recipients may also apply for need-based tuition assistance. If need-based tuition assistance is requested, the student's family must complete the FACTS application, which will aid the Tuition Assistance Committee in understanding the family’s financial situation.
