Scholarships for the IB Diploma

St Clare’s offers a number of academic scholarships and bursaries to students who would benefit from and contribute to the academic, creative and sporting life of this lively international community.

Awards are made on the basis of academic ability, likely general contribution to College life and financial need. All awards run for the two years of the course, although renewal for the second year is subject to satisfactory performance and conduct. Two awards are designated as Anne Dreydel Foundation Scholarships, the founder of St Clare’s in 1953.

Scholarship Day: Saturday 24 February 2018


Eligibility for scholarship

Scholarships are awarded to students of strong academic ability, while bursaries may be awarded to students who would benefit from and make a considerable contribution to College life.

Two Music Scholarships are also offered. They will cover the costs of weekly musical instrument tuition for students taking Music as an IB subject, during both years of the IB Diploma course.

We welcome applications from students from both the UK and overseas. However it is a requirement that all shortlisted applicants attend our Scholarship Day, which consists of two written examinations, a group exercise and a series of short interviews with staff members at St Clare’s.

What do our scholarships cover?

The maximum award is for full tuition fees (day students) or full tuition and residential fees (residential students). No more than two full residential and tuition scholarships will be awarded. A larger number of smaller awards will be made and may include some awards of more than 50% of total fees. Awards do not cover associated costs such as books, exam fees and trips.

All awards of scholarships and bursaries are “means-tested” and it is a strict requirement that the parents of applicants must disclose fully their income and assets and provide documentary proof of income.

Please contact Chris Osbourn, Admissions Registrar, with any questions you may have about the application procedure or Scholarship Day.
