SOBT offers both merit and need-based scholarships. These scholarships are granted by the SOBT Scholarship Committee with input from the School Director and faculty as a reward for excellence and as an encouragement of potential. Merit scholarships are based solely on a student’s talent, technical progression, work ethic, and commitment to training. Need-based scholarships are partially based on the student attributes listed above and partially based on the student’s family’s finances. We look closely at student behavior and parental support with regard to attendance and adherence to SOBT policies when determining scholarship awards.
Merit scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee upon recommendation from the School Director and faculty. Students and parents should not request this type of scholarship.
SOBT has a limited number of financial aid scholarships available. Financial aid recipients must re-apply each calendar year for the upcoming Annual Session. The deadline for financial aid applications for the 2016-2017 Annual Session is August 19, 2016.
