Veritas Scholar Award
The Veritas Scholar Award is given to select boarding students who exhibit both a love of learning and a commitment to the service of others. At San Domenico, we believe that communities thrive when we empathize with one another and act accordingly and the Veritas Scholar Award honors students who exhibit empathy via their commitment to learning and service. With this financial award we recognize students who take pride in the ongoing acquisition of knowledge – academic, artistic, athletic, or social. Additionally, this merit award is given to students who demonstrate an understanding of the importance of giving – time, energy, and thought. This award recognizes those students that have contributed to their community through service and/or extracurricular commitments.
The Scholarship is an award of up to $20,000 and is renewed each year until graduation, provided the recipient remains in good academic standing and is a positive contributor to the San Domenico community.
A limited number of awards are granted each year to deserving students both within and outside the United States. The Admissions Committee will determine awards and recipients will be informed when they receive their admission decision notification. The award is available to students entering grades ninth and tenth.
TO APPLY for this scholarship, you will be required to answer the two questions below, using approximately 250-350 words as a guideline for each question:
- What is it about learning that you love? Please provide at least one example of a time when you enjoyed not only the result, but also the process of a project, activity, or experience.
- In what ways do you feel you have contributed to your community? Please note that community can mean anything from family to school to town. In what ways do you look forward to contributing to your high school community?

Demonstrated financial need is not a requirement of the application process. However, recipients are also not precluded from obtaining additional financial assistance should the family qualify for financial aid.
