At Salem young people learn how to assume responsibility for themselves and for others. For this reason, the term "Elite" in Salem is not just restricted to excellence in schooling. Good marks are a basic prerequisite for a successful scholarship application, but for scholarship holders we also assume a particular personal attitude, i.e. setting a high demand on oneself and being able to apply one's knowledge and skills for the good of others.
Thanks to the donations from former Salem students, parents and friends of the school, scholarships can be awarded at all three Salem levels.
Students who already attend Schule Schloss Salem are not able to apply for a Salem scholarship. In the Middle School they have the possibility of applying for a Heinrich-Blendinger scholarship.
