The Bridgedale Academy Leadership Award (the “Leadership Award”) is a partial waiver of Bridgedale Academy tuition and/or fees made to qualifying applicants. Applicants generally must first demonstrate that they are top-notch in a balance of qualifications, including leadership, strength of character, discipline, moral values, academic commitment, and any such other qualities of high character that will make them outstanding persons and citizens. This combination of qualities must be such as to indicate the applicant is deserving of special consideration for this prestigious award. Applicants must also demonstrate the inability of their family to otherwise meet the financial commitments of attending Bridgedale Academy. Applicant may also include any other factors, i.e. domestic or social, that indicate the applicant will make a noticeable positive impact on the Bridgedale Academy family. Please fill out this form only if you think you meet this standard. The Bridgedale Academy Leadership Award Committee (the “Leadership Award Committee”) will review all applications promptly and notify you as soon as possible about your request.
NOTE: Bridgedale Academy is committed to furthering the academic and athletic development of all of its student-athletes, including those with the desire and ability to compete athletically at the collegiate level. NCAA amateurism rules do not allow for an arrangement where an athlete is sponsored by anyone other than someone with whom the individual is naturally or legally dependent (i.e. parent or legal guardian) or an extended family member (e.g. uncle, aunt or cousin). A school may waive an individual’s tuition provided the individual qualifies for the waiver under the school’s established waiver policy and athletics ability is not a part of the criteria under such a policy. The Leadership Award, awarded to those who qualify for a waiver under Bridgedale Academy’s established waiver policy, is awarded on a year-by-year basis and so must be applied for prior to each season. Further, applications for this award, and any and all information contained in them, shall remain confidential.
