The announcement of needs-based scholarships application is done in April by the Administration. The interested families apply on line and turn in their files with the required documents. The applicants’ statuses are reviewed by the school’s scholarship committee. The students must have been on the discipline committee and his/her previous GPA should be at least 60 out of 100. Scholarships are awarded based upon an overall score on a number of criteria, which are written and revised by the SEV Foundation.
The scholarships are given on an annual basis and are not an earned right.
2. Merit Scholarships
5th, 6th, and 7th grade students
5th, 6th, and 7th grade students may be granted a merit-based scholarship in order to reward their academic performance, participation in extracurricular activities, and positive behavior in school. It is offered to the top 7 students in 5th, 6th, and 7th grades who, at the end of the year, have a GPA of at least 4.75 or a 90 on a 100-point grading scale. It is a one-year scholarship that covers 25% of the tuition fee for the top student and 10% of the tuition fees for the 2nd-7th students. In the event that there is more than one student with the same GPA, that is to say, in the event that the number of students who have the same weighted average is higher than the number of available scholarships, students’ GPAs from previous years will be taken into consideration. If there is no way to break the tie, then the scholarship budget will be divided among students evenly/equally.
In addition to GPA, students must not have received any sanctions from the SBEB. Merit-based scholarships are valid for one year only. The same student can be granted multiple scholarships in the following years provided that he/she fulfills the required criteria. If the student receives a disciplinary sanction in the year he/she was granted a merit-based scholarship, he/she will forfeit the scholarship and the tuition fee for the current year will be collected from his/her parents. Students who are granted merit-based scholarships reserve their right to apply for financial support scholarships. Merit-based scholarships are offered to students with high GPAs; as such, in the event that a student who received a meritbased scholarship changes schools for any reason, the scholarship cannot be transferred to another student.
• 8th grade students
This scholarship, awarded to the top five 8th grade students at SEV Middle School, is a one-year scholarship which covers 35% of the tuition fees for the prep year only and is conferred by SEV High Schools.
If the top five students who graduated from SEV Middle School choose to attend SEV High Schools in other cities, then they are still allowed to keep the scholarship as long as they apply and are admitted to the SEV High School in question. In case there is more than one student with the same weighted average at the end of the year, then students’ High School Entrance Exam scores will be assessed and the students with higher scores on this exam will be given priority. The student must not have received any disciplinary sanctions during the past school year.
