Impact Scholarships

For Current Use

Impact Scholarships are gifts to the Academy that are not invested with Brewster's endowment. This type of scholarship offers the most immediate form of financial aid; the entire amount of the gift is used to fund the award to a deserving student or students. Impact scholarship donors who contribute at least $5,000 or more may name the scholarship they create. The Impact scholarship may be renewed annually with additional gifts.
