We believe that to be a human being means to live in relationships, and that building bridges helps communication more than putting up walls. Our school strives to be an inclusive space without physical barriers (we have built a ramp, elevator, toilet for the disabled…), and also without mental barriers, where diversity is welcome.

WHAT

Thanks to our donors we have been able to offer 10 new scholarships on average each year since school year 2017/2018. At this moment we have 41 students whose study (enrollment fee and tuition fee) is financially supported by our donors or is fully covered by them. In school year 2021/22 we would also like to offer scholarship to other students who would otherwise not have the chance to study at our school, but in our eyes are a needed part of our Bilgym community.

FOR WHOM

We are looking for talented and gifted children who are willing to fight for their future.

Physically disadvantaged children, children from big families, or children from incomplete families.

Children from families living in financially challenging circumstances.

HOW

Each application will be considered by the School Board on an individual basis, looking at both the overall score reached at the admission exams as well as the family’s social situation. Applicants will be informed at the same time about their admission exams results and the decision on their scholarship application.
