Aiglon Scholarship Fund
The Aiglon Scholarship Fund is the School's flagship fund that supports Aiglon’s commitment to maintaining a diverse and talented student body. We recognise that there are students for whom access to a school like Aiglon is impossible. It is our ambition to widen the access to students from across the globe in the hope that in the future they become agents for positive change and enhance the reputation of the school. This is a current-use fund, which may be spent in part or in full at any time by the School. Awards are set against tuition and residential costs and may include reasonable additional expenses incurred while a student attends Aiglon.
Emergency Relief Fund
Aiglon responds to Covid-19 with the creation of the Aiglon Emergency Relief Fund to support students affected by the pandemic.
Covid-19 knows no borders, political affiliations, or background. As the pandemic spreads and continues to evolve, we are committed to taking additional proactive measures to protect our community, on and off campus. Our scholarship students, in particular, may be struggling to cover unexpected costs related to travel, technology access, health and wellness, and other unforeseen circumstances.
Your gift to Aiglon counts now more than ever.
100% of all donations to the Aiglon Emergency Relief Fund will directly support our students’ most urgent needs as they adapt to changing circumstances. This fund was created to provide financial assistance to Aiglon students facing financial challenges brought on by natural disasters, or a current social, economic, or health crisis. Please consider offering your support during this challenging time.
Summer School Scholarship for Alumni Children Fund
The Summer School Scholarship Fund for Alumni Children was created as a means-tested award to facilitate sending alumni children and grandchildren to the Aiglon Summer School for up to two weeks. The School is committed to providing opportunities for students to benefit from an Aiglon education regardless of capacity to meet the cost of tuition.
SEBA CZ Scholarship Fund
The Seba CZ Scholarship was set up in memory of Sebastiano 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.
