EF International Academy is committed to rewarding students for their achievements and helping them reach their goals by awarding scholarships based on academic merit and financial need.
Our annual Founder’s Scholarship campaign gives six exceptional students the opportunity to attend our schools in Britain and the United States and covers 50% of tuition and accommodation for the two-year IB and A Level programmes.
Two scholarships are granted at each of our campuses- located in New York, Oxford, and Torbay and will be awarded to highly talented, ambitious students who can make a positive contribution to the EF International Academy community.
Students who are granted a Founder’s Scholarship are not eligible to apply for any other EF International Academy scholarships for the A-level or IB Diploma Programmes.
Applicants should demonstrate excellence in two key areas: academic achievement and English language proficiency.
Candidates will also present themselves as well-rounded individuals. This may be demonstrated by extra curricular achievements such as sporting achievements, musical talent, community service, and leadership. Winners of local or national academic competitions such as Maths or English Olympiads are welcome to apply.
Applicants must be highly motivated and will be looking to further their studies at world-renowned institutions after their time at EF International Academy — preferably at Oxbridge colleges or Ivy League universities.
Each EF International Academy admissions office worldwide can nominate a maximum of five candidates locally for submission to the central scholarship board, by no later than December 31, 2012.
Candidates selected for a scholarship interview will be informed not later than January 15 2013, Telephone interviews will take place before January 31, 2013 and results will be announced on February 2013.
