Park Scholar Program
The Park Scholar Program offers much more than a scholarship; it creates a dynamic learning community that develops future communications leaders who engage critically, act globally, and perform ethically. Through a mixture of academic and service programming, scholars are challenged to take action and give back to their communities, and to use the power of mass communication to make a positive impact on the world.
A limited number of merit-based scholarships are awarded to outstanding high school seniors each year. In addition, a few merit-based scholarships are also awarded to Park School rising juniors each spring.
Upon entering the Park Scholar Program, Park scholars are expected to
- maintain a 3.5 GPA and full-time enrollment in the Park School
- engage in significant and meaningful community service
- participate in Park scholar activities
- be a model citizen and maintain good judicial standing.
In addition, first-year scholars are expected to live with and participate in the H.O.M.E. program, a residential learning community that explores multicultural issues.
