The Beekman School Scholarship

Authored By: 
George Higgins, Headmaster

We’re pleased to offer The Beekman School's Merit Scholarship, a program offering each recipient 50 percent tuition remission for each year that he or she remains a student in good standing with a minimum 3.0 GPA. For students enrolled at Beekman for four years, this award will be worth more than $80,000 in tuition value. 

The scholarship is designed to provide an opportunity for students to attend The Beekman School who may not have been able to do so otherwise. All new, incoming 9th and 10th grade students who earn a minimum 3.0 GPA during the current school year are eligible to apply.

Potential candidates must be full-time for the full academic year and must be U.S. citizens.

To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must complete the online admission application and note “The Beekman School Scholarship” in the comments section. The following application documents must also be submitted via email to Headmaster George Higgins at georgeh@beekmanschool.org:

  • One 500 word essay answering the question, “Other than academics, how do you plan to contribute to the Beekman community?”
  • Most recent transcript from the current school year
  • One letter of recommendation

Finalists and their parents will be contacted with regards to setting up an interview at the school as part of the application process for all prospective Beekman students and families. In addition to the standard admissions interview, finalists will discuss their essay, letter of recommendation and other award areas.

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
