Affording Foxcroft

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Foxcroft accepts students based on their qualifications without regard to their family’s financial situation. Families are encouraged to apply for financial aid when there is demonstrated need and to explore merit scholarships available as appropriate. Our college prep school for girls, located in Virginia, offered 51% of the student body need-based and/or merit-based aid for the 2022-23 school year, totaling $2.1 million in need-based aid and $500,000 in merit-based aid.

Late submission of the PFS or tax returns may jeopardize financial aid awards.

Merit Scholarships

There are a limited number of endowed, merit scholarships available to students. Other merit scholarships for new students do not require an additional application. They are awarded based on the overall strength of the general admission application and on specific criteria stipulated by the donors.

Bedford Scholarship

The Ruth T. Bedford ’32 Merit Scholarship for the Arts, a $25,000 grant-in-aid for which you must apply, honors Ms. Bedford by supporting girls who share her passion for the arts and who embody her sense of adventure and enterprise.

Mars Scholarships

Mars Scholarships Merit Awards are multi-year scholarships awarded to students with a demonstrated ability in the areas of literature and the arts; science and math; and civics, government leadership and history, and a particular interest in service to their community.

IT Fund

Established anonymously in 2008, this fund provides merit-based support to ITs (daughters and granddaughters of alumnae).

Endowed Scholarships

Foxcroft is grateful to the many donors who, through their generosity and thoughtfulness, have provided the opportunity for future students to attend our boarding school. These funds do not require an additional application and are awarded based on the overall strength of the general admission application and on specific criteria stipulated by the donors.

Four-Year Full Scholarships

Two Extraordinary Opportunities

Through the incredible generosity of a loyal Foxcroft family and Lou Womack, Foxcroft is pleased to be able to offer two full scholarships honoring Mary Louise Leipheimer and Jess Y. Womack, respectively. These scholarships are for a maximum of four years each and become available when the current holder of the scholarship graduates. No additional application is required for these scholarships. 

Leipheimer Scholarship

Established in 2005 by a loyal Foxcroft family, the Mary Louise Leipheimer Scholarship is named in honor of Mary Louise Leipheimer. A former Head of School, Mary Lou devoted most of her professional career to Foxcroft before retiring in 2014. Her four-year scholarship is awarded to "a student who possesses the ability to work hard and play hard. This student demonstrates the qualities, often overlooked in young people, most exemplified by Mary Lou: honor, dedication, loyalty, humor, grace, and an understanding heart."

Womack Scholarship

Established in 2008 by Lou Womack, in memory of her husband Jess, the merit-based Jess Y. Womack II Scholarship makes a Foxcroft education more readily available to girls with enthusiasm for making the most of the Foxcroft experience.
