WAIMEA, Hawaii: Parker School is pleased to announce the availability of two Richard Smart Scholar grants for the 2012-2013 school year. Each grant of $8,500 will be awarded to one incoming freshman and one current Parker School student entering the freshman class in the fall of 2012. These grants will be given to students exhibiting exceptional academic potential on the basis of both need and merit.

Parker School provides a college-preparatory experience in a small-school setting where students develop academically while exploring their individual talents.

Parker School students are well prepared for college upon graduation.
Applicants must complete the Parker School admissions application, financial aid application and essay. Scholarships will be awarded based on need, merit and the submission of an essay with a maximum of 600 words responding to the following question: Where do you see yourself in 10 years, and how can Parker School help you get there?
