We believe that Kroka needs to be accessible to ALL students, regardless of their background. We strive to fulfill this promise through sliding scale tuition and additional scholarships. Today, over half of Kroka families receive some form of financial aid. 

Scholarship Support for Summer Programs:

Sliding scale tuition rates for individual students registering for summer or semester programs are listed with each program description. If addition financial aid support is needed, please see the below options:

 

  • The General Scholarship Fund – This fund is designed to support families for whom the sliding scale tuition is not adequate. Scholarship awards are granted on a first-come-first-served basis during the enrollment and registration period. To apply, please fill out this Scholarship Application Form.

 

  • A limited number of Full Tuition Diversity Scholarships are available for summer programs. Through the generosity of our community we offer these scholarships to help us reach our goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion. If you know of a student who should be a recipient of one of these scholarships, please email summer@kroka.org

Scholarship Endowment Fund

As a part of our 2018-2020 Capital Campaign we began to establish a $500,000 endowment as a seed fund that will grow over years to come to support the needs of the next generation. The endowment fund will have restricted use for student scholarships only. This fund will perpetually grow through reinvestment and on-going fundraising, independently and professionally managed by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and responsibly invested in alignment with our mission. We are still working to reach our goal of $500,000. Please help make Kroka accessible to all by donating to our Scholarship Endowment Fund!
