Scholarships & Bursaries

Scholarships

New students entering Grades 6 through 12 are able to apply for a Merit Scholarship. Merit Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the Scholarship Portfolio, and are renewable. In order to be eligible for a scholarship, students must first submit a completed application to Rothesay Netherwood School and have an academic average of at least 85% (or equivalent) in their current school. There are a limited number of scholarships available per year.

How to Apply for a Scholarship

Scholarship portfolios will be accepted once a student has completed the application process. 

Scholarships Round 1
- Completed Portfolio due by 4pm on December 10, 2021. Decisions will be made and candidates will be notified by January 14, 2022.

    Bursaries

    Bursaries are awarded on demonstrated financial need to Canadian families. It is an award and no repayment is required. The size of individual grants is limited by the amount of endowment monies available and the number of applicants. 

    To apply for bursaries, a completed school application form must be on file in the Admission Office. All requests for financial assistance are processed by an independent firm, Apple Financial Services, for assessment and recommendation. There is a nominal fee associated with this service.
     
    In evaluating requests for aid, the school considers the following criteria
    • The demonstrated financial need of the family
    • The financial assistance that is available from the school
    • The students' academic record and their potential to contribute to school life.
    • Our commitment to equitable treatment for all applicants. This is possible only if full details of the parents' financial situation have been disclosed on the Apple Financial Services application.

    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.

    Review and Approval Process

    All requests for bursaries must be made through the use of Apple Financial Services. No request for financial assistance is entertained by the school unless a school application is on file and the information is submitted to Apple Financial Services. All information is held in strict confidence. A new financial aid application must be submitted each year and reflect any changes in financial circumstances. All awards are given on an annual basis and are not automatically renewed. The level of financial support may be adjusted if there is a change in the parents' financial status.
     
    Returning families requesting financial aid must submit forms to Apple Financial Services each year. Current school fees must be paid in full before an application can be considered. All awards will be credited to a student's tuition upon enrolment for the following academic year.
