Scholarship holders play a special role at Schule Schloss Salem. They act as role models through their high social competencies and willingness to take on responsibility and are dedicated representatives of the school, both during school activities and at off-campus events.
Partial scholarships are available to students in both the Abitur and the English-language International Baccalaureate programmes.
Once school begins all scholarship holders become acquainted with one another at a special get-together event. Depending upon the weather, an individual programme is arranged that focuses on informal networking but also on informing students about the Kurt Hahn Foundation. Schule Schloss Salem places great importance on the interaction of all scholarship holders with each other and on their relationship to the financial donors and supporters of the school.
Level of Scholarship Aid
Non-Income Dependent Scholarships
The base amount for each scholarship is € 6000 per year, or € 500 per month – independent of the income and financial circumstances of the family. This means a reduction in the current school and boarding fees by this exact amount.
Need-based Increases to Partial Scholarships
Beyond this base scholarship an additional sum can be granted in consideration of the income and financial circumstances of the family. It must be applied for separately and substantiated with documentation such as tax assessments, etc. We explicitly ensure that this personal data will be handled confidentially. It has no influence on the qualification for a scholarship. The school gives sole consideration to the academic qualifications and the personal qualities of the applicant with regard to our official criteria.
As a rule it is expected that a family makes a contribution of 6000,- Euro per year, or 500,- Euro per month.
If no income statement is submitted, the scholarship will be limited to the base amount of 500 Euro per month
