How to Apply for a Scholarship

Scholarship candidate selection is based on student merit and financial need. Our ideal scholarship candidate has a strong academic background/standing, is involved in the school and/or local community, and participates in co-curricular activities in and/or out of school.

Our scholarship application has two components: the Admissions Application and the Financial Aid Application. The deadline for both applications is November 15, 2022.

  1. The Admissions Application is the application form requested of all applicants. Applications are accepted online. Scholarship applicants can request an application fee waiver code by emailing admissions@yorkhouse.ca. Please note that an application is not considered complete until we receive all requested documents. After accepting your application, we will send you an email to invite your child to attend our admissions assessments.
  2. IMPORTANT: A scholarship application means the applicant will only be considered for our limited scholarship spots, with the exception of the Alumnae Scholarship. If you are an alumna applicant who has applied for the Alumnae scholarship, you may also be considered for a regular space. Please contact admissions@yorkhouse.ca for more information.
  3. In order to provide the most objective assessment of a family’s financial need, YHS is using an external service provider called the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program, operated by Independent School Management (ISM). To apply for assistance, the family of the applicant must complete the confidential online application form and your application will be forwarded to FAST for analysis, after which it will be considered by the Trustees of YHS Foundation. The Financial Aid Application fee is $45 USD. Access the FAST application.
Please note that all financial and application information is kept strictly confidential, and is shared only with the Head of School, the Director of Finance, and the Director of Admissions. If you have any questions, please contact Mong Xuan Ha, Director of Finance, at mha@yorkhouse.ca.
