List of 3 items.

  • Atlantic Canadian Scholarships

    Rothesay Netherwood School is pleased to be able to award Atlantic Canadian Scholarships, worth up to $30,000, to new boarding students entering the school. The scholarship is awarded on the basis of the Scholarship Portfolio and is renewable as long as the student maintains an 85% average and remains active within the RNS community.
  • Entrance Scholarships

    Entrance Scholarships are available and are worth up to $2,500. They are awarded only for the first year of enrolment at RNS. These scholarships are awarded based on an entrance essay and are non-renewable. Contact the Admissions Team for more information.

    Merit Scholarships valued up to $10,000 are available each year to new students. These Merit Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the Scholarship Portfolio. These are renewable according to the same criteria as the Atlantic Canadian Scholarship.

Scholarship Portfolio

Rothesay Netherwood School is eager to admit students who will be involved in the school community, are ready for the challenge of the academic program, who know the value of effort and realize the importance of giving back. The most successful students take full advantage of all the opportunities an RNS education offers. Successful candidates must be well-rounded individuals or those who demonstrate excellence in academics, leadership, service, and extracurricular involvement. Those students who are interested in applying for a scholarship, will need to complete the Scholarship Portfolio. This would include:
  • An essay stating why the applicant feels they are a good candidate for RNS and what they would bring to the school community.
  • A one to two minute video to introduce the applicant. 
  • Evidence and examples of well-roundedness or excellence in a particular area. (Arts, Science, Service, Sport)
  • A letter of recommendation
It is expected that the recipient will stay involved with the school and, at some future point, give back to Rothesay Netherwood School in some manner to the degree possible.
