Community Enrichment Scholarships
In addition to the Annual Fund, donors interested in supporting Financial Access at King may consider creating a Community Enrichment Scholarship to continue King School’s tradition of enrolling the most capable and talented students from a wide range of economic backgrounds. Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to offer need-based scholarships to students who enrich our community in alignment with our strategic goals:
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Strategic Enrollment Management
Community Enrichment Scholarships are multi-year commitments in order to support a student through a certain division or until graduation. Donors who commit to $10,000 or more per year become members of King’s Champion Society and may name the scholarship. Every year, we seek to replace scholarships that are ending and create new scholarships to benefit the King School community.
