EtonHouse has launched an academic scholarship for the IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Group. These scholarships are available at the EtonHouse International School at Orchard.
The scholarship grant fully covers capital levy and school fees throughout the duration of the course. This amounts to an estimated $37,000 per year for IB Diploma and $35,000 per year for IGCSE over 2 years to be renewed on a yearly basis (see EtonHouse Orchard fees by year level).
To maintain the scholarship, students are expected to exhibit exemplary behaviour, maintain a minimum predicted grade A for Cambridge IGCSE or a minimum 6 per subject at IB Diploma. They should also actively contribute to the school and the immediate community.
IGCSE / IB Diploma Scholarship Criteria - New Enrolments
- Scholarships are available to new students enrolling into Year 10 for the IGCSE Programme, and Year 12 for the IB Diploma Programme at EtonHouse @Orchard
- Four levels of scholarships will allow for tuition fee reductions of 25, 50, 75 or 100%. The level awarded will be determined by the school.
- Scholarships only cover the tuition fees and application fees. Scholarship recipients will cover the costs of any incidentals such as uniform, books, trips and educational visits.
- A family can only receive a maximum of one scholarship.
- All scholarships are awarded for one year and may be renewed if all original application requirements have been met. This includes the conditions:
- The recipient has maintained the achievement level appropriate to the type of scholarship awarded.
- There has been no disciplinary action at the level of a suspension or greater.
- The school has received a scholarship renewal request by the published due date.
- The scholarship can be revoked
- at any time should the school determine that the application included false statements.
- if the scholar fails to meet the required expectations of the scholarship award or noticeably fails to keep up with the level of his or her capability.
- if the recipient fails to be a role model for their peers and does not demonstrate a high level of commitment to their studies. At least one formal warning in writing will be given to the student and the parents prior to the withdrawal of the scholarship. In the case of extreme disciplinary measures, the scholarship may be revoked without any prior written notification.
- All decisions regarding scholarships are made in private by the school leadership team and are final. No appeals or requests for justification will be accepted.
