Deeply committed to international and intercultural understanding, Verita provides an academically engaging, inquiry-based educational approach. Our responsibility is to whole-heartedly assist our students to develop the social-emotional and academic skills necessary to live meaningful, fulfilled, and happy lives.
The objective of the VIS Scholarship Programme is to provide, where space and school finances allow, a Verita education to qualified students of any nationality who are unable, due to financial limitations, to access a VIS education.
Of a VIS scholarship student
- An excellent level of academic performance in their previous schooling;
- A commitment to social justice;
- A lively interest in the world around them;
- An interest in cultural and academic pursuits that extends beyond their school lives.
- Scholarships are awarded to students based on financial need and on their academic abilities, community service efforts and ethical behaviour.
- Current and former students of Verita are not eligible to apply.
- Scholarships are awarded only upon full disclosure of all family resources as requested by the Scholarship Committee. Such information remains confidential.
- Financial need is evaluated annually using a uniform methodology and awards are adjusted if necessary. Scholarship recipients must complete a short financial application each year in order to renew their scholarship standing.
- Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis without regard to nationality, race, colour, gender, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation or national or ethnic origin.
- A student must pass an EAL test and be able to demonstrate a high level of English proficiency and academic aptitude.
- The school will continue to fund a student through graduation provided he or she continues to perform at an acceptable social and academic level, unless she or he no longer demonstrates need.
- The school anticipates exemplary behaviour and performance from all its students and failure of the student to display this ethical behaviour is grounds for rescinding the scholarship.
- Scholarships are reserved for students entering Year 9 (13 years old) and Y11 (15 years old with IGCSE in Y10) with very strong English, Mathematics and Science skills as indicated by grades, writing samples, and Verita entrance examinations. The Scholarship Committee completes a thorough review of each applicant’s academic record.
- The maximum number of scholarships available, determined by the School Director in consultation with the Scholarship Committee is 4.
- All scholarship candidates must be interviewed by the Scholarship Committee.
- Scholarships will normally cover between 50% to 75% of tuition depending on the family resources.
