Headwaters Promise Scholarship

Live Authentically, Think Expansively, and Create Bravely

New applicants to Headwaters School applying to grades 9 and 10 are invited to apply for Headwaters Promise Scholarship, awarded annually to applicants who exhibit promise in one or more of the qualities listed in Headwaters Promise Statement: We guide our students to live authentically, think expansively, and create bravely. Whether that is traditional academic prowess, excellence in performing or visual arts, entrepreneurial spirit, or strong citizenship, Headwaters values students who embody these aspirational characteristics. 

Headwaters Promise Scholarship will be awarded to qualifying applicants for the 2024-2025 school year in the amount of $5,000 each. Students are eligible for the scholarship in their first year at Headwaters only. While there is no set number of scholarships, Headwaters School anticipates giving out five awards for the 2024-2025 school year. 

How To Apply 
Students seeking candidacy for the Promise Scholarship should first submit a fully completed Headwaters admissions application through the admissions office and complete a visit day on campus. Following the visit day, students should submit a one-page essay focused on the prompt to scholarship@headwaters.org

“Share an instance where you stepped outside of your comfort zone to live authentically, think expansively, or create bravely. How did this experience shape your perspective and contribute to your personal development? Discuss the role of courage and authenticity in overcoming obstacles, and explain how these qualities will continue to drive your future endeavors.”

Applications for the Promise Scholarship will only be considered for students who have completed all other admission requirements. Students seeking consideration for the Promise Scholarship should submit their essay alongside their other admission materials. Each applicant will be reviewed anonymously by the scholarship committee, consisting of guides and administrators in the high school program. Admission application materials will be reviewed alongside the essay submission. Scholarship notifications will be made on a rolling basis as applicants are approved by the scholarship committee, with a goal of responding to all applicants alongside their admission decision.
