Lincoln School allows any student enrolled or applying for admission to apply for financial aid. Families demonstrating need may take part in the following financial aid programs: Need-Based Financial Aid, Lincoln Scholars or Community, Greenhalgh, Alumnae, and Quaker Scholarships.
Lincoln School does not discriminate on the basis of color, religion, national or ethnic origin.
We ask that families understand that due to limited resources we may not always be able to offer a grant. There are no full scholarships available in the Lower School; only partial financial aid awards are made in the elementary grades.
All awards are determined by the Financial Aid Committee.
Each year families must fill out financial aid form, and the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and submit to School and Student Services. To file the PFS online, go to sss.nais.org.
If a family has children at other independent schools or colleges, they must apply for aid at those schools as well.
In case of divorce or separation, the parent with whom the child resides must file the PFS. Lincoln School will request financial documents from the other parent. If either parent refuses to submit requested information, the family may not be eligible for aid.
Families who own a business or farm must also fill out a Business/Farm Statement form. The forms can be downloaded at sss.nais.org.
Lincoln School assists as many families as possible with financial assistance. However, the School does reserve the right to cancel any financial aid grant if false information has been provided, if a family fails to pay its portion of the tuition, or if the student fails to meet her requirements as stated in the Lincoln School handbook.
Applying for Tuition Assistance
The first step is to apply for admission to Lincoln School. Only students who have fulfilled all requirements for admission will be considered for financial aid. The second step is to apply for financial aid. Submit the PFS to School and Student Services, along with a copy of your most recent 1040 and W-2 forms by February 15th.
