Private School Scholarships:

On this page, you can find a listing of scholarships that are specifically for students attending or planning to attend private high schools. Check our other pages, too, for generic scholarships that might also be relevant to private school students, as well as students of other types of high school (see the icons on the top left corner of this page).     

 

 

 



 

Scholarships for Private High School Students:

There are several scholarships available for private high school students. While some of these pay tuition only, others pay other expenses, too, such as books. Most of these are need-based, though some are merit-based, too. Also check our other pages navigating through the buttons on the left hand side of this website, through which you can find scholarships that are more generic in nature. On this page, we list only those scholarships that are relevant to "private high schools:"

 

1) Children's Scholarship Fund (CSF):

Provides partial tuition assistance for low income students to go to private schools, including private high schools. More than 29,000 children use CSF funds every year throughout the USA. CSF pays, on average, 50% of tuition costs.  Eligible families should demonstrate financial need. Note though that this is not just for high school students, but also for elementary and middle school students.

2) Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Schoolarships:

Offers scholarships for students throughout the USA. Applications are open to students in seventh grade to receive funding in high school (grades 9 to 12). There is about 7.5% chances of winning one of these scholarships, and students from families with no more than $25,000 income have higher chances. In certain cases, the scholars could continue receiving support through college and sometimes graduate school, too. Strong academic record is important (generally a GPA of 3.5 or above).

3) A Better Chance:

For academically talented minority students across the United States. Students are selected based on the following criteria: The student must (1) perform consistently at or above his or her grade year, (2) have a GPA of B+ or above, and (3) be ranked at the top 10% of the class.  as part of the application process, students are also required to take a standardized test (Fee vaiwers are provided for the test). The fund does not have a cut-off for standardized tests, but these, too, are taken into consideration in assessing the academic talent of applicants.  Participating extracurricular activities in and outside of the school increases chances of winning. Demonstration of good leadership skills is also an important factor. Each student goes through an interview of about 15 minutes.
