During the years she taught at Park, Rosemary Knower was a force for innovation and creativity in the theater. Taking on direction and production of plays and musicals well outside the typical realm of a high school performing arts program, she inspired a generation of Park students to challenge themselves and to embrace and love the stage. It is in celebration and memory of this exuberant experimentation, as well as her lifelong dedication to and passion for the actor’s craft, that this scholarship fund has been established to help nurture that same passion in the young women who attend Park today.


The Rosemary Knower Memorial Tuition Assistance Fund is provided to young women with an identified passion for Theatrical Arts. It is an annual designation available to rising sophomores and above, to supplement the student’s Park School need-based tuition assistance award. Qualified candidates will have participated in multiple years of theatrical engagement, to include any combination of acting, technical design or execution, costuming, makeup, stage management, or playwriting. A minimum of one full year’s engagement in these areas at Park School is required.
