Academic Merit Scholarships

The RANNEY SCHOLARS merit-based academic scholarship program aims to recognize the academic accomplishments of students who are both new to Ranney School and who are currently enrolled. The program focuses on students entering 9th grade. Scholarships range from $2,500 to $10,000 and are granted based on a student’s scholarship application and academic achievements.

Ranney was proud to launch the T. Thomas Fortune Merit Scholarship in the 2021-2022 school year, a program designed to recognize incoming 9th grade Black students for their outstanding academic achievement with a full, four-year merit award for Upper School (grades 9 through 12). Students must also demonstrate financial need for a full scholarship. This particular scholarship was developed to ensure that Black students with high academic potential but without the financial means to afford a Ranney education could access the vast resources our school offers to inspire students to reach their full potential. This new scholarship is just one component of the Ranney Scholars academic merit program. The T. Thomas Fortune Scholarship was inspired by a generous Ranney family committed to social justice and systemic change.

The deadline for applications for the Ranney Scholars merit scholarship program is January 15 of each year. 

The RANNEY SCHOLARS and T. THOMAS FORTUNE programs complement Ranney School’s existing need-based financial aid program. Students awarded a merit scholarship may also apply for need-based financial aid.

“Our goal is to make the extraordinary education and resources available at Ranney more accessible to families. With expert teachers, small class sizes, award-winning arts programs, and unique athletic offerings, Ranney students have the opportunity to pursue individualized, rigorous academics while also exploring all of their extracurricular passions. It is our hope that this scholarship program may provide the extra opportunity students need to discover and reach their full potential.”
