Scholarships aren’t distributed randomly, but rather are the reward for a student’s outstanding achievement and high commitment to academics, social service and extra-curricular activities. Thanks to the Landheim foundation, we are in a position to honor such achievement with partial scholarships for one academic year.
First, we offer merit scholarships for students in grades two to twelve. Our goal is to enable particularly talented, motivated and dedicated students to attend boarding school. Secondly, each year we grant need-based financial aid to students in grades one to twelve. Our aim is to offer students an outstanding education regardless of their families’ financial means.
The foundation deliberately grants a higher number of partial scholarships, rather than full scholarships, in order to maximize the number of students who receive financial assistance and can thereby take advantage of the Landheim’s excellent educational opportunities. Students receiving aid are required annually to renew their applications for financial assistance.
Thanks to the high commitment and dedication of the Landheim’s posterity fund particularly gifted students are supported financially in the spirit of encouraging excellence. Partial merit scholarships are offered to students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement and have enrolled in the Landheim between grades two and twelve. There is no legal entitlement to such scholarship based on financial need. Students must maintain a grade point average of 2.0 (A-) or better in order to keep a merit scholarship over a succession of school years.
Partial need-based scholarships and financial aid are available to Landheim students based on their families’ income and financial assets. Dedication and commitment to Landheim community life are also prerequisites for receiving financial aid. Families receiving financial assistance from the Landheim are obliged annually to disclose their income and total financial assets in order that aid may be fairly distributed according to each family’s needs.
Individual Landheim students may receive an annual school and boarding fee reduction of up to forty percent. Applications for financial aid are due each year on April 15th for the following school year.
