Robert Eisner Distinguished Scholar Program

As a world-renowned economist, Robert Eisner advised presidents, governments and the educational community. He was a long-time supporter and benefactor of Roycemore School, and the Robert Eisner Distinguished Scholar Program was established in his memory.

Roycemore awards at least one new full tuition scholarship each year to an incoming 9th or 10th grade student, based on a student’s demonstrated academic achievement, social justice and civic engagement work, and leadership abilities. The scholarship is renewed for each subsequent year as long as the student maintains a 3.0 grade point average and contributes positively to the school community. 

Award winners are selected by an Independent committee and announced by the Head of the School in late December. External candidates are encouraged to apply as are currently enrolled Roycemore students.
