Scholarship Funds – Co-Curricular Financial Assistance
Blake Parent Association
The Parents Association Scholarship Fund--financed by the Spring Festivals of 1982-84-- allows The Blake School to maintain its margin of excellence by providing financial aid to eligible students who could not otherwise afford this opportunity. It is also used to fund several small awards to students at all grade levels to cover extraneous expenses for co-curricular activities.
Robert W. Shogren Memorial Scholarship Fund
Established in 1991 in memory of Bob Shogren, the parents of five Blake alumni, the Shogren Memorial Fund helps deserving students at Blake afford the opportunity to participate in any activity offered to them regardless of their personal financial situation.
As each of the Shogren children were able to experience Blake to its fullest, the goal of the Shogren Memorial Fund is to help students with co-curricular expenses. The focus is primarily on fees incurred by Upper School students, typically those on financial aid. However, the fund is available to any student wishing to participate in extra-curricular activities, by whose family cannot absorb the additional expense.
The Northrop Class of 1963 Fund
Originally named as The Debbie Dyar Stevens Memorial Scholarship Fund, this fund was established in 1988 in memory of Debbie and in honor of the 25th reunion of the Northrop Class of 1963. The fund was used to support non-tuition financial aid for girls in the Upper School at The Blake School.
Now renamed as The Northrop Class of 1963 Fund, this fund honors the memory of all those classmates who have passed away and in honor of the 50th reunion of the Northrop Class of 1963. Those women are Nancy Solstad Baltins, Barbara Lee Clifford, Peggy Sweatt McGee, Pat McNairy, Nancy Geltman Shiller, Debbie Dyer Stevens. In addition, it provides financial aid, tuition and non-tuition, on an annual basis for eligible female, Pre-K-12, students who could not otherwise afford this educational opportunity.
