The NoVo Foundation Scholarship is made possible by a generous grant from the NoVo Foundation to provide a Waldorf Education to students in New Paltz and the surrounding areas who might not otherwise be able to afford the cost of attendance at Mountain Laurel Waldorf School.
The scholarship offers a tuition-free placement for two students entering 7th grade in the 2019-2020 school year. Recipients will retain their tuition-free places through graduation from 8th grade.
NoVo Scholarship Candidates
The ideal candidate for a NoVo Scholarship would demonstrate:
- Solid academic skills
- Strong social skills

Waldorf Education can achieve its fullest potential only with the involvement of the student’s family. Families of NoVo Scholarship candidates must:
