Eden College offers a limited number of academic and merit scholarships to incoming students each year. Learners with exceptional academic ability or those that have achieved recognition in the arts or sport may apply for a bursary or scholarship at the school.
There is a special application process, which includes annual Scholarship Examination; these are written in mid-March only. Award decisions are based on the results of these English and Mathematics Scholarship examinations as well as Admission Applications. Where required, an interview may also form part of the process.
The main scholarship examinations are written by pupils in Grades 7 and 9 for admission to Grades 8 and 10 of the following year, however, truly exceptional students in other high school grades are invited to submit a CV and a full academic record with the special application process for consideration.
On occasion, a gifted pupil who is truly exceptional in one or more fields may apply to the school. This Scholarship Examinations is written in mid-March only as well as a Cultural Evaluation thereafter. Pupils who may be interested in applying for this form of scholarship should be excellent scholars with a solid academic record as well as have a rare and
award-winning talent. The areas in which the school has considered previous candidates are; Art, Dance, Drama, Music, Debating and Sport. Bearing in mind that Eden College offers a choice of Art, Dance, Drama and Music as matriculation subjects alongside all other ‘regular’ subjects, one can understand why there continues to be a demand for this.
At Eden, unless stated otherwise in the letter awarding the scholarship, the award runs for the duration of the pupil’s tenure at the school. Please note that there are a few provisors to the continuation of the scholarship from year to year, though it is almost unheard of for the following issues to cause a problem:
- At Eden College Durban, unless stated otherwise in the letter awarding the scholarship, the award runs for the duration of the pupil’s tenure at the school. Please note that there are a few provisors to the continuation of the scholarship from year to year, though it is almost unheard of for the following issues to cause a problem:
- Scholarship pupils are awarded special concessions because of their rare talent and hard work. Should their performance drop substantially without reasonable cause and, after interventions by the parents, school and counselling department, not begin to improve – the school reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship.
- Scholarship pupils are awarded special concessions because of their rare talent and hard work. Should they refuse to become involved in the greater life of the school, refusing to belong to or help with various projects, teams and clubs, after counselling and warnings, they could lose their scholarship.
- In the unlikely situation where a scholarship pupil breaks a major aspect of the Code of Conduct or continually transgresses more minor aspects of said code, the scholarship could be revoked.
- The awarding of a scholarship is a wonderful achievement; however, the details regarding the scholarship value / amount are STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL as this is a private matter between the parent and the school. Should it become apparent that the family has discussed this with a third party; the school maintains the right to revoke said scholarship.
- Eden’s School Fees are always paid in advance. A late payment may result in the learner losing (rescinding) their Scholarship, resulting in the school fee payment reverting to the normal FULL school fees i.e. defaulters may be liable for normal FULL school fees.
