A Social Initiative
Since 2016, Cambridge School has offered annual scholarships to students from Vallès Oriental who are highly motivated to learn but are faced with financial barriers to access private English language instruction.
This social initiative has been very well accepted by schools, students, and institutions and it allows students who receive scholarships to take a further step with English at a decisive time for their education: when they are transitioning from obligatory secondary school to the work world or to upper secondary school or professional training.
Intended Scholarship Recipients
The Cambridge School English Scholarships are aimed exclusively at students who are in their fourth year of obligatory secondary school at the time of the respective scholarship application, and the application process is open to public schools from the 10 municipalities where Cambridge School is located: Granollers, Caldes de Montbui, Cardedeu, La Garriga, La Roca, Mollet, Parets, Sant Celoni, Vilanova del Vallès and Llinars del Vallès.
What the Scholarships Include
The scholarships include a complete academic year at Cambridge School (from September to June) covering tuition, all course fees, as well as books – this is a total of approximately €1,100 per scholarship.
The Selection Process
Scholarship applications are channeled through the English departments at the different secondary schools, which offer more information about our scholarships to students.
In terms of the more than 20 public secondary schools participating in the program, there will be a scholarship recipient at each one provided that candidates have submitted an application and meet the requirements set forth for participation.
Once the application process has finalized and candidates' applications have been evaluated as described in the scholarship rules, the awardees are announced.
Scholarships are presented at a ceremony to which the scholarship recipients are invited, as well as their families, the teachers at their secondary schools, and personalities and authorities from the municipalities participating in the program.
CURRENT APPLICATION PERIOD FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR

A Shared Success
Through our first three scholarship program editions, more than 60 scholarship recipients were able to cultivate their English with us at a key time in their education as they were preparing their professional lives – doing so through an experience that has been evaluated as positive by all participants.
As a school, we are pleased to have shared this initiative with them – and their successes are our reason to continue forward with future editions of the Cambridge School English Scholarship Program.
