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 ideal candidate for a NoVo Scholarship would demonstrate:

  • Solid academic skills
  • Strong social skills
