Scholarships

The following scholarship funds are available to Lovett students who want to extend their education outside the walls of the traditional classroom. Each fund has its own purpose and provides either need-based or non-need based support to students seeking to travel abroad, study the humanities, or conduct an ambitious Senior Project. The amount available from each fund is limited and varies from fund to fund. Anyone interested in making a donation to these important funds should contact Andy Spencer in the Development Office.

The Tommy Aldredge '74 Scholarship Program

This fund, established as a memorial to Tommy Aldredge '74 through the generosity of his family and friends, originally helped a qualified student from a foreign country participate in one school year at Lovett. In 2000, after consultation with the Aldredge Family, the purpose of the scholarship was changed to support outstanding Lovett students' summer travels abroad. The travels must be educational in nature and the funds are reserved for those with some financial need.

The Catherine Louis Lovell '66 Student Grant Program

Established in October 2003, The Lovell Fund allows the school to offer grants designed to reward and support current Upper School students who demonstrate good character, academic curiosity, and a passion for the liberal arts. The awards were created for the pursuit of one or more avenues of liberal arts endeavors by providing financial support for opportunities such as travel-study programs, intensive study, and independent study. This award was designed as a one-time award and bears the obligation/responsibility of a public presentation to the Upper School or other appropriate group. The Catharine Louis Lovell '66 Student Grant Fund will serve to further many of the most important goals and traditions of a Lovett education--character, academic curiosity, life-long learning, and hands-on learning. Contact: 

Siempre Verde Scholarship Program

Siempre Verde Scholarships are provided each year and are available to Middle and Upper School students who wish to travel to Lovett's cloudforest property, Siempre Verde. Preference will be given to students receiving regular, school-year, tuition aid, but the committee will consider students not currently receiving tuition assistance, but who have demonstrated need. This scholarship furthers the most important goals and traditions of a Lovett education--pursuing one's passion, academic curiosity, life-long learning, and hands-on learning. Contact: 

The Daniel J. Toohey '99 Senior Project & Creativity Fellowship Grant Program

The Toohey Fund was designed to help 12th grade students who pursue special and creative interests through the Senior Project and the Creativity Fellowship programs. The support may include, but is not limited to, travel, supplies, and research materials that enable the student to fully implement the plan of independent study. This special funding will benefit talented and deserving individuals and, by extension, the school as a whole. It will promote The Lovett School's goals of creativity, pursuing one's passion, academic curiosity, life-long learning, and hands-on learning.

The Emily Dunn '06 Memorial Scholarship for International Gap Year Studies

The Emily Dunn '06 Memorial Scholarship for International Gap Year Studies was established in 2011 and provides funds to defray the costs of an international gap year experience for a graduating Lovett senior, in honor of Emily, who was transformed by her gap year travels in China, India, Egypt, and Portugal. The Dunn family hopes that students will use these funds to take a gap year between high school and college in order to broaden their understanding of the world. To be eligible, seniors must be admitted to a college or university and have that spot held while they are away. Applications are considered in early April. Contact: Patrick Boswell
