The Otis Read Scholarship
The Otis Read Scholarship was established through the generosity of a Boys' Latin benefactor to honor Otis B. Read '55, who served as Head of Middle School at BL for 33 years and a combined 50 years as a BL teacher, coach and advisor. The Read Scholarship of $7,000 is awarded to new middle school students who reflect Mr. Read's commitment to boys of great promise, character and contribution. Winners are selected on the basis of high academic achievement, strong personal integrity and outstanding involvement in the life of the community.
The Legacy Scholarship
The Legacy Scholarship was established through the generosity of Boys' Latin benefactors to establish endowments for tuition assistance.The Legacy Scholarship is awarded to new upper school students. Awardees are selected on the basis of academic achievement, strong character and integrity, outstanding involvement in the life of the community, and, in most cases, demonstrated need.
Both Reed and Legacy Scholarships are renewable each year contingent upon the student maintaining high academic performance and exhibiting strong character. Award winners are also eligible for summer enrichment programs, as well as the School's broader leadership development and mentoring opportunities.
Those interested in applying need to notify the Admissions Office of their interest and submit their completed school admissions application by December 15th. Finalists will be selected for campus interviews in late January and award winners will be announced on February 15th.
Each year a number of upper school students are selected to be Named Scholars who receive financial support from funds established by or in the name of long-time supporters and friends of Boys' Latin. Most of the 60 Named Scholars are recipients of need-based financial aid. Some receive merit awards. All Named Scholars must have applied for financial aid.
