The European School Scholarship
The European School is committed to supporting talented students, helping them succeed in a rigorous academic environment in the IB Diploma Programme and American High School and preparing them for their education at leading universities. We are determined to make sure that their families’ financial standing does not prevent academically gifted students from achieving their full academic and career potential. The European School Scholarship aims to fully fund up to six students who meet the scholarship criteria and successfully pass all stages of the selection.

We would like to share a few tips that you may find helpful before you start working on your application.
The application is divided into sections: Student Personal Information (provide your contact information, education, etc.), Documents (upload documents), Writings (provide answers to five short questions), Letters of Recommendation (provide your recommenders’ names and contact information) and Parents/Guardians (provide information about your parents/guardians).
Once you fill out the application form and hit the submit button, you cannot go back in to edit it. To avoid submitting an application that is incomplete, go through all the application questions first and prepare your answers carefully!
Most questions are straightforward, self-explanatory, and factual. However, for the Writing section, we recommend that you take more time to craft your answers. When evaluating your profile – your academic achievements, your recommendations, etc. – we will also consider your writing skills, creative mindset, your wit, and ability to convey relevant information about yourself.
