The DC Embassy Scholars Program

The DC Embassy Scholars Program
Embracing diversity and global connectedness is part of Whittle’s vision and what we take deep pride in. This special scholarship is open to children of employees from the 174 embassies in DC and who are entering Grades 4 through 11. Scholars are selected on the basis of academic achievement and promise; interest, understanding, and appreciation for global perspectives, issues, and challenges. Most importantly, we seek motivated students with a genuine fit for a Whittle education as demonstrated by intellectual curiosity and engagement.

The Admission Committee will award up to 25 DC Embassy Scholarships, each in the amount of $20,000, renewable annually provided the recipient remains in good academic and disciplinary standing.

Students interested in the DC Embassy Scholarship Program should submit their application for admission and consideration by the deadline and are strongly encouraged to complete the “Share Your World” supplement of our application.
