Malone Scholars Program

In May 2009, Canterbury School was selected by the Malone Family Foundation to receive a $2 million endowment for the funding of educational opportunities for academically talented and motivated students whose families demonstrate financial need.

Canterbury is one of just 50 schools in the nation to be part of this prestigious program. The amount of the award varies, according to the financial need documented by the student’s family.

Founded by Dr. John C. Malone of Colorado, the Malone Family Foundation’s primary goal is to provide scholarship funding at the secondary level for students who are at the 95 percent or above of their classes, and who have the desire and drive to maximize their potential, but have limited financial resources to attend independent schools.

If your child does not qualify for Malone Scholar status, financial aid may still be available to help you afford a Canterbury School education. If you apply for the Malone Scholarship, you will automatically be considered for any aid available through the school’s financial aid program. All financial aid information is confidential.
