Brookstone School seeks to identify, attract, and reward those students in the Greater Columbus area, who have distinguished themselves in academics, and who have developed strong qualities of character. The competition is open to all nominated, rising 9th grade students from other area schools, regardless of race, ethnic origin, nationality or creed. All scholarship awards are renewable annually, as long as the student maintains good academic and deportment records.
Since established in 1976, this scholarship program has undergone multiple changes including the number of awards given and the amount of money awarded, but the idea behind the Brookstone Honor Scholarship remains the same: to bring talented, well-rounded students of the highest integrity and character to Brookstone.
In order to apply for the Honor Scholarship, the first step is to submit an online application. In addition, the following documents will be required:
- Two letters of recommendation
- School transcripts with first-semester final grades
- Two teacher evaluations-one math and one English

- Friday, November 17, 2017

- Friday, January 12, 2018

The deadline for all documents and testing to be complete is January 26, 2018. Interview day will be in early February.
