SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships

From 1999/2000 onwards, the Foundation has granted scholarships to particularly brilliant students to enable them to study at Le Rosey.

Furthermore, the Foundation has financed the studies of a great number of Malian students in Bamako in Rosey’s sister school.

Today, the Foundation extends its support to students in the artistic field in Switzerland.

1. Scholars at Rosey

To particularly talented students, the American Foundation offers academic scholarships to enable them to study at Le Rosey. Candidates are students with exceptional intellectual, sporting or artistic potential and who desire to be part of Le Rosey community and its values and who appreciate the benefits of this special program.

Conditions for the candidates are:

  • Sit the languages and mathematics exams as requested by the Scholarship Commission of the Foundation (CBF). The results must show that the candidates are likely to achieve outstanding academic results.
  • Take an interview with the CBF committee (in person or by Skype)
  • Complete an application dossier (documents, academic results, video, prizes or trophies won, etc.) containing a description of the academic, artistic, sporting and social abilities of the candidate, written by the teachers of the school currently attended. This dossier is forwarded to all concerned departments for review and analysis, who will then submit their appreciation in writing.

Parents of scholarship candidates are requested to:

  • Provide all necessary documents, in particular a tax declaration, in support of their demand for scholarship. The amount granted is proportional to the financial means of the parents, who will be requested to make a contribution to the school fee, even if this can be symbolic.

Requirements for the renewal of scholarships:

  • A scholarship is granted for one year. The scholarship renewal for another year, and up to the end of the candidate’s studies at Le Rosey, is made upon approval of all the departments: boarding school, academics, arts, sports. All need to be fully convinced that the primary condition for a scholarship has been fulfilled. A written report written by each department stating on this point is transmitted to the CBF committee each year before May 1.

Applications mentioning “scholarship” should be sent to Le Rosey’s admissions department.

2. Rosey Abantara Scholars in Mali

Each year, the Foundation grants several scholarships to the Rosey Abantara school in Bamako, Mali.

Candidates, selected by the General-director, come from local public schools in poor suburbs. Their admission to Rosey Abantara takes place with the agreement of the Directors of the partner schools. The students are evaluated on school results which must put them among the 5 best students of their class. Particular attention is given to the balance between the number of boys and girls.

Each scholarship, to an amount of 1,000 CHF, covers the totality of school costs for one candidate for one year, i.e.  school fee, supplies, uniform, transport, meals.

For an extra 200 CHF, you can finance a place at the boarding school – your support totalling up this way to 1’200 CHF/ year. Thanks to this support, gifted students who have difficult living conditions (no water, no electricity) can attend the boarding school and study in the best possible environment.

3. Students of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland (HES-SO)

Since the opening of the Rosey Concert Hall in 2014, the Foundation has become an important player in the regional cultural scene. Granting scholarships to young people destined for a great artistic career, the Foundation pursues its involvement in art and culture.

One or two scholarships are granted each year to students enrolling either in HEMU, Lausanne’s University of Music, part of the Music and Performing Arts Faculty of HES-SO or the University of Art and Design – ECAL ( HES-SO).
