Fairmont Schools Launches Scholarship Contest at San Juan Capistrano Campus

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., July 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fairmont Schools has partnered with Orange County Education Foundation to bring a merit scholarship program to its new San Juan Capistrano (SJC) campus. The scholarship competition is offered to newly-enrolling Fairmont students entering grades 6-9 and will be held remotely on August 4. Applications and information are available at www.fairmontschools.com/sjcscholarship.

"Since Fairmont's inception in 1953, we have been committed to making our outstanding educational experience as accessible as possible," said David Jackson, Chairman of Fairmont Schools. "The addition of our SJC Excellence Merit Scholarship program builds on that long-standing commitment. We are delighted to bring this opportunity to the community surrounding our newest campus."

For the 2020/21 school year, a total of $17,500 will be awarded to the top five-placing students ($5,000 to each of two first-place winners and $2,500 to each of three second-place winners). In addition, the first 25 newly-enrolling 6-9th graders who participate in the contest will receive a "Welcome to Fairmont" scholarship of $1,000. All awards must be applied to Fairmont tuition for the upcoming school year. While these scholarships do not renew annually, recipients are welcome to reapply in subsequent years, as available.

The program was developed in partnership with Orange County Education Foundation (OCEF), a non-profit organization whose goal is to increase access to outstanding education at premier private schools in Orange County. "We are very pleased to partner with Fairmont Schools in this effort," said Seth Bass, Executive Director of OCEF. "The objective behind SJC Excellence Merit Scholarship program is in complete alignment with what we set out to accomplish at OCEF."

The Fairmont SJC Merit Scholarship Program is open to newly-enrolling students entering grades 6-9. Scholarships are not based on financial need. Instead, they are awarded to qualified applicants who demonstrate the potential to make a significant contribution to the school through excellence in academics, leadership, co-curricular activities, and service.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, prospective families also submit an application for admission to Fairmont SJC. Students then complete an application to be entered into the scholarship competition which will take place on August 4.

For the competition, Fairmont SJC will host a virtual event (via video teleconferencing) where applicants will:
