Having supported numerous outstanding scholars over the years, we understand the unique challenges faced by them when applying to universities abroad. In Years 12 and 13, our scholarship students will receive substantial support from their mentors, university advisers and the Director of the Scholarship Programme to ensure that they choose degrees and universities with the best possible scholarship and funding opportunities in their chosen field.
In addition, Akademeia High School Foundation will offer our top graduating scholars a one-off grant to support them in relocating to their university abroad. We also encourage our scholars to apply for external funding from other foundations and charitable organisations and we support them in the process by helping to identify viable scholarship programmes and providing references.
In the past, our scholarship students were very successful in obtaining external funding from organisations such as the Rafał Brzoska Foundation or Fundacja Talenty. Many scholarship students were also successful in applying for scholarships at their universities, including full scholarships from the University of Cambridge.
