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:

  • 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.
