Commitment to Iowa Scholarship

Commitment to Iowa Scholarship

Private School can seem unattainable or unaffordable. We understand. We have some suggestions about how to make private school more affordable on another blog post. We are also really excited to tell you about a scholarship we offer to individuals who already live in Iowa and want to come to Maharishi School – our Commitment to Iowa Scholarship.


The Commitment to Iowa Scholarship will be awarded to a limited number of eligible applicants entering the 6th-12th grades. The award is based on both need and merit; the need is assessed by Financial Aid Independent Review (FAIR) and merit is evaluated based on the student’s application, GPA and prior school records. This scholarship can be awarded up to 4-years, based on the availability of funds, will cover up to 25% of tuition (minus a $300 deposit) for students in grades 6-12. To continue receiving the scholarship, the student must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and remain in good disciplinary standing. The parents of students receiving the Commitment to Iowa Scholarship must reside in Iowa. The parents must also commit to either volunteer at the School 40 hours/year or fundraise at least $400/year.

The CTI donor will support up to $50,000 in scholarship funds each year.
