Dwight Global has a long-standing commitment to its financial aid program, which allows students to have an independent school education regardless of the family’s financial circumstances. As a central part of our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Dwight values enrolling a highly qualified student body with diverse talents, interests, and backgrounds. Recipients of financial aid must reapply each year and all financial aid information is kept confidential. We seek to support as many families as possible and our award decisions are based on demonstrated need.
Since the pandemic outbreak the school has received an unprecedented number of financial aid applications and we are aware that needs may continue for the foreseeable future. Dwight Global has made available funds for emergency assistance during this time of crisis though the demand for aid still exceeds the funds available. With this in mind, we are working to offer some assistance to as many families as possible and may not be able to offer as much aid as each family requests. Financial aid awards range from small grants to full tuition.
Additional Considerations for Families Applying for Financial Aid
All financial aid applications are reviewed confidentially, comprehensively and individually. We use TADS financial aid application system to help us fairly evaluate award decisions. There are no specific benchmarks for income levels to qualify for financial aid. Providing additional narrative details in the application will assist the Financial Aid Committee to understand any extenuating circumstances that are unique to your family.
If you anticipate needing financial assistance in the future, please indicate this at the time of admission. Families who initially enrolled at Dwight School without a financial aid package are eligible to apply for aid only if they have experienced a significant change in circumstances. Funds are not available for families with pre-existing needs that were not disclosed at the time of initial admission.
To be eligible for consideration for financial aid, you must complete your online application and upload all required supplemental paperwork (most recent W2s, tax returns, 1099, etc.). We will communicate decisions about financial aid together with the admissions decision.
