Receiving a scholarship to attend Aiglon College changed my life. And today, because of the education I received, I am helping to change the world. In 2010, having graduated from MIT, I decided to return to Kenya. In the last five years I have worked to get much needed banking services to people who need them most, helped to facilitate the flow of capital to under-served markets, developed social insurance and social impact bonds, and supported the development of our crucial healthcare, education and clean energy sectors. I am part of a movement that will one day transform the prospects of my whole nation. And none of it would be possible without Aiglon.
The goal of our scholarship programme is to create sustainable funding for highly talented and motivated students with the potential to become outstanding achievers, at Aiglon and beyond.
The John Corlette scholarship fund provides scholarships and financial aid to students from all over the world. Ideally, we would like for ten percent of our student body to benefit from scholarships and financial aid based on merit and need.
The selection committee consists of the Head Master, the Deputy Head (Curriculum) and the Director of Admissions & Advancement. Criteria for consideration include a demonstrable record of excellence in at least two of the following areas: academic study, individual or team sport, creative and performing arts, leadership and community service.
Furthermore, candidates must be capable of adapting to and benefiting from each aspect of Aiglon's education programme. All awards are subject to personal interview, references and a means test.
· Scholarships are awards of 5,000 CHF given on the basis of academic merit, regardless of demonstrated need.
· Financial assistance is awarded following an assessment of a family’s financial circumstances.
· All awards are governed by committees comprising senior members of staff and teaching faculty.
· All students can apply for both types of awards.
· Students must commit to the pursuit of excellence in academics and other areas of school life, committing themselves to the Guiding Principles and demonstrating appreciation of the opportunities provided.
Over the last two decades Aiglon has welcomed over 60 students on scholarship.
Due to the generosity of alumni and parents this is the highest number in Aiglon history.
Many of our past scholarship students have reached to U.K. and U.S. universities:
