The Scholarship Program

The Winston School is committed to serving our community of students from all economic backgrounds. For those who find themselves unable to pay the full tuition rate we may be able to provide a discount through our scholarship program. Our financial aid grants are need based, and a family’s request for financial aid is considered independent of the admission and enrollment process.

Students who are eligible for financial aid must meet the following criteria:

  1. have measurable financial need based on documentation supplied in their application packets through the online FAIR application process;
  2. have a clearly diagnosed learning difference;
  3. be deemed likely to contribute positively to the School community;
  4. be deemed likely to benefit from a specially designed educational environment.

Application Process

The Winston School uses an organization called Financial Aid Independent Review, Inc. (FAIR) to collect and interpret financial information. Families who are interested in applying for tuition assistance through our scholarship program may submit an application at ANY TIME. Please note that FAIR applications submitted after the April 17 deadline may not be funded due to a limit on available funds that are primarily distributed in May. Parents who file their taxes separately must each submit a FAIR application. Students currently receiving financial aid must reapply each year.

To learn more about FAIR or to apply, please consult their website: 

In order to submit an application, please enter our school code of 166 and password, which is tws166 on the FAIR website.
