Wilson Grants for Junior School Students

Wilson Grants for Junior School Students

While there is much uncertainty in the world these days, we are doing our best to plan for brighter days ahead! MBA is pleased to offer Wilson Scholarships to rising 8th and rising 9th grade students for summer 2021. The purpose of these grants is to reward excellence and to offer students the opportunity to pursue, explore, and strengthen their interest in a variety of academic fields and artistic interests. 
 
We understand that there may be some uncertainty as many programs have not yet announced dates or plans in light of current situations. We are allowing students to apply for the anticipated program of their choice with the understanding that information and details about the specifics of the program may be forthcoming. 
 
The Wilson Grant covers the cost of tuition (full or partial) for the course or program. Additional room and board fees (in part or full) can also be considered. Students are expected to research their program of interest before completing the application process. This includes identifying all direct participation costs, pertinent travel costs, application deadlines, and attendance dates as indicated on the application. Please note that the application for Academic Grant Opportunities *must* include a proposed budget of expenses in order to be considered. 
 
If funds are available, the award may also include a stipend for travel to and from programs out of the area. Travel costs, if approved, will be reimbursed directly to families by the school. All other scholarship expenses are paid directly by Montgomery Bell Academy.
 
We respectfully ask that students apply for no more than 2 grants and suggest that they spend time creating thoughtful, quality applications. 
 
Listed below are two types of programs:  MBA Directed Trips (one each for 7th and 8th grades), and Academic based grants. 
 
Students may also propose participation in a program or research project of their choosing (ie, not on the pre-approved list), but must receive approval of that proposal from the Director of Junior School prior to submitting their applications. Please seek approval for it as soon as possible by providing information about the program directly to Mrs. Stewart.
