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 talented students for whom access to a school like Aiglon is impossible due to financial resources. 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.
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.
The Alumni Eagle Scholarship Award
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Alumni Eagle Scholarship Award, a new scholarship opportunity that will support one scholar’s Aiglon journey. Funded by donations from Aiglon graduates and their families, this scholarship will be awarded to one student to support their Aiglon education. The first grant will be given to a new student joining Aiglon in Year 10 (previously 4th Form) for the 2022 - 2023 academic year. We are asking all members of the alumni and alumni parent community to consider making a gift. Gifts of all sizes will add up to make a big impact. This full scholarship award is reserved for a student whose family cannot afford any costs associated with an Aiglon education. It will be a means-assessed, merit-based award that will be given to a student who has a proven track record of high academic achievement, involvement in a range of extracurricular activities and a commitment to self-improvement. Candidates will need to demonstrate high aptitude through Aiglon's admissions process, testing arrangements and interview.
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.
