Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 2018 – Eighth-grade students looking for a world-class academic experience are encouraged to apply for a merit scholarship at University Liggett School prior to January 18, 2019. Michigan’s oldest independent day school is looking for exceptional students in metro Detroit to apply for the prestigious scholarship to fund their high school education.
“We strive to deliver academic excellence to every student who walks through our doors, and are always looking for the best and brightest,” said Bart Bronk, Head of School. “Students who have earned a merit scholarship for our school greatly contribute to our school’s success and go on to do great things with their life. We’ve seen merit scholars go on to be Rhodes and Fulbright Scholars and attend top Ivy League universities.”
Previous merit scholars at University Liggett School include 2013 graduate and Rhodes Scholar Aaron Robertson and 2012 graduates and Fulbright Scholars Zoe Hu and Abigale Belcrest.
“I can state honestly and confidently that I would not be here today without the confidence in my academic capacities that the Merit Scholar program and University Liggett School community more broadly granted me, and for that I am incredibly grateful,” said Belcrest.
Additionally, merit scholars at University Liggett School have gone on to attend college at major Ivy League universities such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton, as well as the Naval Academy and Notre Dame.
