The John R. Foster Scholarship
The family of John R. Foster created the John R. Foster Scholarship Fund at St. Luke’s Episcopal School to honor the memory of a much loved, extraordinary man. “Johnny” was born in Del Rio, Texas. He attended Sewanee: The University of the South, which he said transformed his life. First and foremost, his Episcopal education forged deep commitments to lifelong learning, service to others, and worship in the Anglican tradition.
The John R. Foster Scholarship Fund provides a full scholarship for a middle school student in grades 6-8 who exhibits a demonstrated record of academic achievement and a “servant’s heart.” The need-based scholarship will be awarded to a recipient who is fully prepared for the rigors of St. Luke’s Episcopal School. The first Foster Scholar joined the St. Luke's community in the fall of 2015.
Who is eligible?
Applicants for the need-based John R. Foster Scholarship must be rising sixth grade students who will be new to St. Luke’s Episcopal School.
When is the application due?
Application files must be complete by March 8, 2017 to be considered for the scholarship.
St. Luke's is grateful to the entire Foster family for their commitment to this scholarship to honor John who embodied the values we espouse. In particular, he put his faith into action through his service to others, a value we seek to cultivate in each and every St. Luke's student.
