Featured Need-Based Financial Aid Scholarships

Every student who submits a financial aid application to Clarity is also applying for these scholarships. There is no separate application process for these scholarships. The Financial Aid Committee will assign the scholarships below during the application evaluation process prior to notifications on March 10.

The Goodnow Family Scholarship Fund

The Goodnow Family Scholarship was established in 2011 by Edward B. “Ned” Goodnow '44, P’80. Mr. Goodnow was also a Hotchkiss scholarship student. In World War II, he served as a combat infantryman and was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge, receiving a Purple Heart. He was recalled in the Korean War and served in Germany. In 1969, he started a successful private investment partnership. Recently, Mr. Goodnow made a substantial gift to Hotchkiss for financial aid for which a Head of School Holiday was called on March 13, 2019. 

Hotchkiss gave me a very solid education foundation, and greatly broadened my horizons." – Edward B. “Ned” Goodnow '44, P’80
