The Ruth T. Bedford ’32 Merit Scholarship for the Arts will support as many as eight Foxcroft School students with an annual grant of $25,000. This scholarship is designed to support girls who share Ruth Bedford’s passion for the arts and who embody her sense of adventure and enterprise, as well as her integrity. The award is open only to new student applicants. An ideal candidate should demonstrate her dedication to the performing or visual arts and possess a strong desire to excel in that arena. She should be academically focused, inquisitive, involved in the arts community, passionate, and interested in developing leadership skills. It is our goal to award someone who will add to the intellectual and creative richness of the school community and who might not otherwise be able to attend Foxcroft.
