Named Scholarships

Linsly is fortunate to have the support of alumni, current and past parents, and friends who have illustrated their support of our school through an established named scholarship.  The Named Scholarship Program provides opportunities for prospective families who could not otherwise enroll at Linsly without the support of financial aid.

The Malone Family Foundation

a recent recipient of the Malone Scholarship

The Linsly School is proudly one of 50 independent schools across the United States to have been awarded the prestigious Malone Scholarship Grant, a $2 MILLION endowment designed to support the school's scholarship program.

In the Spring of 2012, The Malone Family Foundation selected The Linsly School as one of the top independent educational institutions in the nation.
The Malone Family Foundation was founded in 1997 with one principal objective: to improve access to quality education - particularly at the secondary school level - for gifted students who lack the financial resources to best develop their talents.

The Malone Family Foundation selected Linsly based on evidence of high academic standards, quality of faculty and staff, excellent accommodations for gifted and talented students, strong AP and enrichment programs, a commitment to individual attention for all students, financial strength, and a commitment to financial aid.

The Malone Family Foundation Scholarship is awarded to academically talented students applying for grades 7-9 who are in the top 5th percentile or above on their standardized test scores, who exemplify academic excellence in their GPA, and whose families demonstrate financial need.
