Annual Scholarship Fund
Aiglon is actively seeking support for its merit-based scholarship programme. We are committed to maintaining a diverse and talented student body, and we aim to attract the best and brightest students, regardless of their financial background. In order for us to do so, however, we must turn to our community for help.
What Does it Cost to Sponsor a Student?
A full, two-year scholarship to complete our IB programme costs the school CHF 250,000 and a partial, one-year scholarship costs CHF 150,000. These amounts include tuition fees, boarding, and other essential costs associated with life at Aiglon.
How can you help?
Thanks in part to the generosity of our supporters, we currently have 17 fully-funded scholars in attendance. In order to increase this number, we ask our alumni, parents, and friends, to consider making gifts, of any size to this initiative.
The SEBA CZ Scholarship Fund
The Seba CZ Scholarship was set up in memory of Seba Calleri-Zavanelli (Belvedere, 1992), who lost his life on Mount Kenya.
Seba loved Aiglon, and one expedition in particular made a lasting impact. In December 1990, Seba visited the remarkable Starehe Boys Centre in Nairobi, Kenya - a school that had just become the first member of Round Square on the African continent. Seba was very impressed by his experience there. Messages such as 'Aim High' (Natulenge Juu, the school's motto) and 'From those to whom much has been given much will be required' left a deep mark on him.
A little over a decade later, just weeks before his fateful trip to climb the treacherous Mount Kenya, he spoke to his mother about how he had recognised that his Aiglon experience had shaped him, and how he wanted to see others less fortunate than himself able to access an education of quality, regardless of their means. It had become a matter of importance to him.
Seba did not return from his last adventure, but his mother did not forget his words. Together with Seba's employer and team of equity investors in London, she set about raising money to establish an enduring scholarship fund in Seba's name. In 2011 the first Seba CZ Scholar, David Kimondiu (Belvedere, 2013), joined Aiglon from Starehe Boys Centre. After graduating from Aiglon, David completed his undergraduate studies at Stanford. His life has been transformed by the opportunities made possible by Seba’s vision and the by the generosity of his friends, colleagues and family.
