Amelia Sniffin, Hill ’19, was the first ever recipient of the Wallach Family Military Scholarship, created through an endowment from alumnus Marshall Wallach ’61 and his wife and sons.
This scholarship funds an annual need-based scholarship that can cover up to 100 percent of each recipient’s demonstrated need. The award, provided by the Wallachs to honor their family’s long history of leadership in the U.S. Armed Forces, is intended for a highly qualified child of an active duty officer.
View a short video that introduces Amelia and demonstrates what an independent school education has offered her. One benefit of a boarding school, in particular, is stability that is elusive for children of military families who often must move multiple times throughout their school careers.
“I am so grateful for the Wallach Family Military Scholarship,” says Amelia. “Hill never would have been an option for me otherwise. Hill calls itself the ‘Family Boarding School’ and that is true. These people truly are family.”
