Daingerfield Merit Scholarship

Each year, a $5,000 scholarship is awarded to two day students applying to eighth through tenth grades. The program will eventually support eight to ten outstanding students. The scholarship will be awarded to the students who show the potential to make the greatest contribution to the school in many ways.

The Selection Process
The Daingerfield Scholarship is open to day student applicants who live in the Rappahannock River Basin and display a solid academic record, strong character and citizenship, and who will give their talents to St. Margaret’s School. The Admission and Financial Aid committees will choose the recipients. Scholarships will be assessed each year. In order to retain the scholarship, the student must remain in good standing academically and within the St. Margaret’s School community. Students who are selected for the Daingerfield Scholarship may also receive need-based financial aid.

Timeline
Applications for the Daingerfield Scholarship are due by February 10. In addition to the general requirements for admission to St. Margaret’s School, the scholarship applicant must provide two letters of recommendation. Students will be notified of the scholarship award in March.
