WMS Opportunity Awards

Awarded annually to up to three students who embody the virtues valued and modeled in our Middle School program—responsibility, collaboration, curiosity and respect—WMS Opportunity Awards support our ambition to attract a greater and more diverse range of talented students.

The WMS Opportunity Awards are $10,000/year, merit-based scholarships available to 6th and 7th grade students new to the Washington Montessori School community.

“In awarding these scholarships, we hope to broaden our community of students who will go on to become leaders in an increasingly global world,” said Carney O’Brien, Head of School. “We are committed to ensuring that a family’s financial constraints do not keep qualified children from applying to WMS.”
