The Ross School in East Hampton, which serves students from nursery through high school, announced the establishment of the Courtney Sale Ross Honors Scholarship for day and boarding students entering 7th through 12th grades during the 2018-19 academic year. 

“This scholarship will make available up to $1 million of merit-based tuition assistance to students whose academic performance, service within the community, and demonstrated passion and creativity align with Ross School’s values,” a release said. 

The private school, which will close its lower campus in Bridgehampton in the fall and move all classes to the upper campus on Goodfriend Drive, already awards more than $3 million in financial aid and scholarships annually. The new scholarship will be in addition to that.

“We are excited to announce this scholarship, which bears the name of Ross School’s founder, Courtney Sale Ross, and reflects her vision of Ross as a diverse and inclusive learning community,” said Jason Warnick, the school’s director of admissions and financial aid. “Ross is committed to opening doors to promising students from all backgrounds, and we hope that this opportunity will allow families to consider a future at Ross School, regardless of their financial circumstances.”

The deadline to submit an application is June 15. Interested applicants have been asked to visit ross.org/scholarship for more information or contact the school’s admissions office.
