The AWS Scholarship Fund was created in 2010 to provide financial aid scholarships to families in our community.
The scholarship committee exists to work with families who desire the innovative, integrated educational approach developed by Another Way School and who are looking for funding to attend the school.
It is Another Way School’s intention to help supplement a child’s tuition, not be the sole source of funding for a child.
PURPOSE of the Another Way School Scholarship Fund
The Another Way School Scholarship Program was established in September 2010 and was established to provide financial aid scholarships to families in the Summit and Wasatch counties. The purpose of the financial aid scholarship program is to:
- Support the interest of local families who have demonstrated an appreciation of an integrated Montessori approach to child development and education.
- Encourage new families to look at our integrated, Montessori based approach to education.
- Promote demographic and socio-economic diversity within a cutting edge educational community.
Financial aid awards are based on demonstrated need and fulfillment of the purpose of the scholarship program.
Eligibility for financial aid is based on acceptance of enrollment to Another Way School (AWS), and a needs’ analysis of taxable income, assets, and expenses indicated on a completed standard application form.
It is AWS intention to help supplement a child's tuition, not be the sole source of funding for a child. Each scholarship will be determined by:
- Number of openings per scholarship cycle
- Funds available.
AWS works with families who desire expansive and integrated education for their child(ren) and are looking for funding to attend Another Way School.
It is the preference of AWS, though not a requirement, that the following occur:
- The applicant pledges to match AWS available funds for each child
- An applicant first seeks to obtain financial assistance through other private or public funding sources.

A complete scholarship packet will contain, in the following order:
- $50.00 nonrefundable application fee payable to Another Way School

Financial aid awards are based on demonstrated need and fulfillment of the purpose of the scholarship program. The eligibility for financial aid is based on a student’s acceptance through the normal admission process, acceptance of enrollment to Another Way School.
Each year, the Tribal Council will vote to establish the amount of the scholarship(s) and the program (grade levels) eligible, based on enrollment and funds available.
Applications are available online. Completed and submit to AWS. Applicants will be notified as to acceptance within 30 days of receipt application.
The Scholarship Committee with the Tribal Council reserves the right to modify deadlines as needed.
The student must first be accepted through the standard admission process.
Determination of the award is based on the needs’ analysis of the family’s ability to pay school fees and tuition. This information is kept in the strictest confidence and is reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and Tribal Council only.
Any information submitted for consideration can be returned to the applicant upon request to the Scholarship Committee and Tribal Council. If parents are separated or divorced, both parties must submit a financial statement. It is expected that both parents will contribute to their child’s educational expenses.
