2019-20 School Year:
We are no longer accepting applications or supporting documents for the Gardiner Scholarship for the 2019-20 school year.

2020-21 School Year:

Renewal and new families may APPLY NOW for the Gardiner Scholarship for the 2020-21 school year by clicking the button below.

Please note: Gardiner Scholarship funding is limited, and applications are processed based on the following priority:

  • RENEWAL students will have funding priority until June 30, 2020. If funding is not available at the time an award determination is made, the student may be placed on the waitlist. (A renewal student is one who has received Gardiner Scholarship funding for the 2019-20 school year.)
  • NEW students, including those currently on the 2019-20 Gardiner waitlist, who are found eligible for a 2020-21 Gardiner Scholarship will be placed on a waitlist due to the requirement to provide renewal students priority.
    • Once the deadline for renewal priority has passed (June 30, 2020), and depending on available funding, students will be moved from the waitlist in this order: 1) students who were on the 2019-20 Gardiner Scholarship waitlist and 2) new students.
  • Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Within the above priority groups, students will be awarded based on the date and time eligibility was determined.

Reminder: Students on the Gardiner Scholarship waitlist for the 2019-20 school year have priority over new students for the 2020-21 school year. We strongly encourage families to apply early.
