Community Scholars Program

Seen, Respected, and Empowered

Falmouth Academy values the richness of an educational experience that includes people with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and identities. In that spirit, the school established the Falmouth Academy Community Scholars Fund to recognize academically motivated students who desire to be part of a vibrant and inclusive school community where each member is seen, respected, and empowered to contribute.

Falmouth Academy is committed to providing equitable access to culturally underrepresented populations.

The deadline to apply is February 1.

Scholarship Information

The selection committee seeks to award students from culturally underrepresented communities from Cape Cod and the Islands, South Shore, and South Coast regions who have demonstrated strong academic past performance, good citizenship, and an interest in engaging in Falmouth Academy’s robust school community.

The Community Scholars Fund provides qualified students with awards that cover a portion of, and in some cases, the full cost of attendance, depending on demonstrated financial need. Qualifying funds also may include transportation, lunch, textbooks, and a laptop computer. These awards are renewable for as long as the recipient remains a student in good standing at Falmouth Academy.
