Taft Conlin Scholarship

VMS is looking for the next Taft Conlin Scholar to join our community in Fall of 2019. The Taft Conlin Scholarship, created in 2014, provides the recipient with full tuition for up to four years while attending upper school at VMS. The Scholarship is merit-based and awarded to students who have demonstrated strong academic performance and contributed positively to their community. This opportunity is currently open to students who will enter ninth or tenth grade in Fall of 2019.

The long-term vision for the Scholarship is to provide opportunities for an incoming ninth grader who will benefit from the full, four-year VMS upper school experience, excel in college, and ultimately contribute to the betterment of the world by embodying the school’s mission. The scholarship is made possible by a fund established in memory of Taft Conlin, a beloved member of the VMS community who died in 2012.

Those interested in applying for the Taft Conlin Scholarship or learning more about this opportunity should contact VMS Director of Admission Jeremy Thelen at 970-477-7164 or by e-mail at jthelen@vms.edu. Please also see the Application Package below.
