Chance of a Lifetime - Bursaries

The Foundation plans to establish a Bursary Fund.

Elizabeth College Foundation is keen to ensure the College long-standing tradition of inclusivity is maintained, particularly in view of the demise of the States of Guernsey’s Special Place Holder scheme.  The Foundation College plans to establish a Bursary Fund to enable pupils from all walks of life in Guernsey who demonstrate the appropriate character and commitment  to continue to be able to attend Elizabeth College.

It is estimated that a minimum of £10 million would be required as an endowment fund to potentially support up to five pupils in each per year with 25% to 100% fee support. This truly would be not only the Chance of a Lifetime, but also the chance of fundamentally changing a life. The ambition in the long term is to build on this fund, increasing  to increase the level of bursary support to a point where it fully replaces the historic Special Place Holder scheme.

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.
