Scholarships

The unparalleled Kiski experience has been enriched by a student body representing all corners of the globe and diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. Alumni and students often reflect on invaluable lessons learned by sharing their personal journeys with Kiski brothers from dissimilar upbringings. Each boy brings a unique perspective to Kiski, and learns to consider the alternative perceptions of Kiski roommates, classmates, and teammates.

The named scholarships listed below have been established to enable Kiski to enroll the brightest and most talented boys that, in most cases, would not be able to attend the School without this life-changing financial aid.

These funds have been established with gifts surpassing the endowment threshold (currently $100,000), or annually replenished restricted scholarship gifts of $10,000 or more.
