Announcing the Janet Bauer Hartman, 1968 Upper School Merit Scholarship

Caroline Blatti, Head of Roland Park Country School, is pleased to announce that The Janet Bauer Hartman, 1968 Upper School Merit Scholarship will be available to students applying for admission to Roland Park Country School for the 2019-2020 academic school year. 

The Janet Bauer Hartman, 1968 Upper School Merit Scholarship was established in 2018 through a generous contribution from the Charles T. Bauer Charitable Foundation. The endowment provides full tuition for one Upper School Merit Scholar selected based on exemplary academic performance and demonstrated community impact.

All candidates for admission to the Upper School at Roland Park Country School who have completed the application process will be eligible for consideration for this prestigious scholarship. The Upper School Merit Scholarship Committee will determine a group of final candidates based on most recent school transcripts, common school referral forms, standardized testing, ISEE scores and essays. Scholarship finalists are invited to campus for a round of formal interviews with the Merit Scholarship Committee, including the Head of School and Director of Enrollment Management.  The Scholarship recipient will be named from these interviews.  

Mrs. Hartman is a Roland Park Country School alumna, past parent, current trustee, and former faculty member who taught Middle School art and Upper School photography for 30 years. Mrs. Hartman embodies qualities that are hallmarks of Roland Park Country School’s philosophy: she inspired in students a lifelong love of learning as well as independence of thought, tenacity of purpose and emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.

Statement from Head of School Caroline Blatti:

“Mrs. Hartman’s profound legacy at RPCS continues to inspire the best in all of us. This scholarship reflects her deep love of learning and her commitment – above all else – to pursuits that create a lasting, positive impact on the community. We will bear this in mind when selecting our finalists and our named scholar.”
