St. Paul's Foundation Scholarship Programme

St Paul’s Foundation scholarship programme making progress  

As the school starts the second term for the 2020-2021 academic year, the St. Paul’s Foundation moves forward with its scholarship programme 

 The St. Paul’s Foundation scholarship programme is now open for applications from children living in Brazil who are interested in benefitting from a British education, but who would otherwise not have access to the kind of experience St. Paul’s offers. 

 We offer an 18-month programme to select and prepare pupils to join St. Paul’s School. Applicants must be regularly attending a school in Brazil, must be aged between 11 and 15 years old on 31st December 2021, and must have excellent grades and a good knowledge of English. 

 Do you know any pupils who would be interested in this opportunity and who meet our criteria? Then let them know that they can apply exclusively through our website by 28th March 2021!  

This year’s applicants who are successful in the selection process will join St. Paul’s School in August 2022.  

 The St. Paul’s Foundation scholarship covers not only the tuition fee but many other costs supporting scholars’ lives at the school, helping with uniforms, public transportation, trips and extracurricular activities, for example. 

Candidates for 2021 entry start the preparation phase 

The four candidates for entry in August 2021 began their preparation course on Monday 8th February. 

The group of hopeful candidates are aged between 13 and 15 years old, and come from different schools in the greater São Paulo area. They attend online lessons led by volunteer teachers from St. Paul’s School – both teachers and support staff. There are three lessons a week, covering special topics. The course will end on 17th June this year. 

Over this term, the candidates will also undertake academic and psychological assessments, as the family members are interviewed by the Foundation’s team.
