Elizabeth College Foundation Bursary Scheme

As a result of the success of the Foundation's Chance of a Lifetime Appeal, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Elizabeth College Foundation Bursary Scheme.
As a result of the success of the Foundation's Chance of a Lifetime Appeal, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Elizabeth College Foundation Bursary Scheme. Parents can now register their interest in applying for a place for entry to Elizabeth College into Year 7 or Year 12 in September 2021.
 
The Elizabeth College Foundation Bursary Scheme is designed to enable boys and girls from all walks of life in Guernsey, who demonstrate the appropriate character and commitment, to continue to be able to attend Elizabeth College, providing an alternative choice for parents.
 
The Foundation Bursary Scheme will support up to 8 students in each year with 25% to 100% fee support on a means tested basis. The Scheme has been funded through donations from OEs, parents and other supporters of the College to the Chance of a Lifetime Appeal, including a tremendously generous legacy left by Old Elizabethan Roger Perrot.
 
The Foundation’s ambition in the long term is to build on this fund, to increase the level of means-tested bursary support available.
 
What is a bursary?
 
A bursary is a reduction in school fees granted to parents who have limited incomes and assets. The Foundation Bursary Scheme offers an additional choice for parents whose family circumstances mean that they cannot meet the full school fees. A bursary is means-tested while a scholarship isn’t. A scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic ability while a bursary isn’t.
 
The benefit of such a scheme is not only to the bursary recipients. Experience at independent schools in the UK is that bursary-assisted students are highly dedicated and make a disproportionately valuable contribution to the overall experience of their peers and school community.
