2021-2022 Merit Scholarship Application Current Kentucky Country Day Students
Kentucky Country Day School (KCD) Merit Scholarships are prestigious awards that help reduce tuition costs for gifted, talented, and motivated students. Scholarships are available to students currently enrolled at KCD and entering grades 6 and 9. KCD annually awards up to six merit scholarships for students entering grade 6 and up to six merit scholarships for students entering grade 9. Each scholarship is valued up to $1,000 on a renewable basis (through grade 8 for students entering grade 6; through grade 12 for students entering grade 9).

These scholarships are awarded based solely on merit and are independent of financial need. Academic achievement, extracurricular participation, and strong citizenship are factors in the selection process. Desired qualities in applicants include the desire and drive to educate themselves to the very best of their ability and the demonstration of exemplary citizenship in accordance with KCD's core values.

Students who apply for Merit Scholarships must complete a merit scholarship application and the KCD Admission testing. The Merit Scholarship application also includes an important essay. The fall testing will serve as one of the deciding factors when the committee reviews Merit Scholarship applications.

Applications for scholarships will be reviewed by a committee of KCD faculty, staff, and administrators comprising the Merit Scholarship Application Committee; a faculty member from the middle school (for grade 6 applicants) or from the upper school (for grade 9 applicants), the Assistant Director of Admission, and the Director of Enrollment Management. The Merit Scholarship Application Committee will recommend recipients to the Merit Scholarship Award Committee. Members of the Merit Scholarship Award Committee are as follows; Director of Enrollment Management, Director of Financial Aid, Director of Finance and Operations, and Head of School.
