Scholarship Opportunities

Overlake is committed to creating a diverse learning community, and the creation of socio-economic diversity at Overlake is supported in part through the financial aid program. As a part of this need-based financial aid program, Overlake offers the two named scholarship programs listed below. Both scholarships are for families who demonstrate financial need through the regular financial aid process; they are not scholarships for families who can afford the full tuition at Overlake. Each of the programs below is different. Please read through the purpose and requirements for each scholarship, and if you are interested, please email Admission office.

Gibson Scholarship


Established in 2019, the Gibson Scholarship aims to help close the opportunity gap for African American students in private schools and universities by enabling scholars to grow in an inclusive, equitable, and multicultural environment. Bruce and Lynn Gibson, along with their children Grant (‘14) and Burke, established this fund to provide support for African American students in admissions to Overlake and success later in college. Learn more about our community's values and initiatives surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion.

If you have any questions, please email Admission office.
