There is amazing generosity and encouragement happening at the Arts and Science school, St. Stephen’s Episcopal School. The Montrose area school is giving $300,000 in scholarship awards to 15 students entering grades 9-11. This is so cool! Such scholarships to private schools have been known to lift whole families out of poverty.

For the first time ever, The Global Scholars Award Program will offer one-year full tuition (renewable annually) to any student not currently enrolled at St. Stephen’s. This rare contribution from a private school is a refreshing reminder of how supportive our thriving arts community is here in Houston.

Founded in 1971, St. Stephen’s began serving high school students in 1997 and graduated its first class in 2001. With these scholarship awards, they celebrate their 15th anniversary by expanding opportunity and influencing young creatives in a direct way.

“As a collaborative community, St. Stephen’s Church and School are committed to the development of world citizens,” says Head of School, David Coe. “The Global Scholars Award Program is the first of its kind at St. Stephen’s and seeks to identify students in the community who embody the core values of St. Stephen’s: individuality, service, inquiry, relationships and beliefs.”

The application deadline is fast approaching, but there is still time to put it out there and see what happens! Students can turn in a complete application packet on selected interview date, either Thursday July 23rd or Saturday July 25th.
