The application for the 2023-2024 Honor Scholarship is now open.
This year’s testing will be held Saturday, February 11, 2023 from 8:30-11:45 am at the Middle/Upper School Campus located at 2500 Nottingham Way. Please report the main entrance of the Inman Media Center to check in.
To be eligible to test, all applications must be completed by noon February 8, 2023 by visiting clicking here. Please note, late applications will not be accepted for Honor Scholarship Testing.
As part of the application process, we require student records and two letters of recommendation, one from a current math teacher and one from a current English teacher. To obtain your student’s records, please sign and date the student record release form and return to your student’s current school office. All documents should be submitted by noon on February 8th.
The Honor Scholarships are merit based academic scholarships awarded to students that distinguish themselves through academic achievement, leadership, and service. We are seeking curious, creative problem solvers who are able to think critically and seek to make a positive impact on our community.
The award remains in place for the duration of the student’s time in their specified division, as long as commendable academic and conduct records are maintained. For example, a student that receives a Honor Scholarship in the 6th grade will receive the same award in 7th and 8th grade. If the award is given in the 8th grade, the award is good for that year only. Upper School scholarships are awarded in the same manner. A student that receives an award in the 9th grade will receive the same award in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. If the award is received in 10th grade, the student will receive this same award in 11th and 12th grade.
The number and amount of scholarships are awarded based on the candidate pool. To receive a Middle School Scholarship, a student must be a rising 6th, 7th or 8th grader at the time the application is submitted. To earn the Upper School Scholarship, a student must be a rising 9th, 10th, or 11th grader at the time application is submitted. No candidate may be a current or former student of DWS or be a sibling of a former Honor Scholarship recipient. All candidates must be present for testing on Saturday, February 11, 2023. Personal interview (if required) will be at a later specified date and time.

The Cannon Family Scholarships are named in honor of Chris Cannon and his family in recognition of their generous support for Deerfield-Windsor School for many years.
Students who have attended Deerfield-Windsor for at least one year are eligible to apply for this half-tuition scholarship. Two non-renewable Cannon Family Scholarships are awarded each school year.
The Scholarships will be presented to students currently enrolled in grades 9, 10, or 11. While academic record and extracurricular activities are considered in the selection process, the scholarship is primarily based on the essay written. Students enter by completing an application and by writing an essay in a supervised setting. The Scholarship Committee decides the winners of the awards.
Ken Rodgers graduated from Deerfield-Windsor in 1976. He died while attending college. To perpetuate his memory, his friends each year give a scholarship to a rising Deerfield-Windsor senior who exemplifies Ken’s spirit and personality. Through this award, the spirit, energy, and friendliness that Ken reflected will not be forgotten but will be perpetually renewed by the examples of the recipients of this scholarship.
