We recognize that a Madeira education is a significant investment and do not want tuition to be a barrier for entry. We believe that socio-economic diversity enriches our community and is critical to our mission to innovate, launch world-changers, and foster values like compassion, curiosity, and awareness of self and others. We encourage any family of a smart, passionate, and caring potential Madeira girl to apply for financial aid if they are concerned about affordability. We are excited to partner with you!

All students are automatically considered for merit scholarships; no additional application is required.
Students will be notified of their scholarship status in early March along with their admission decision.
Scholarships are automatically renewed for each school year provided recipients maintain a high academic average and good citizenship.
