About the scholarship programme
The St. Paul’s Foundation aims to provide full scholarship for gifted children living in Brazil to study at St. Paul’s school.
Located at São Paulo for almost a century, the St. Paul’s school teaches boys and girls from 3 to 18 years old and it was the first school in Latin America to be recognised as a British School Overseas by the British Government. With a bicultural and bilingual Anglo-Brazilian curriculum, the school embraces both cultures and languages. After the IB programme, the pupils go on to top universities in Brazil and the overseas.
At the St. Paul’s Foundation we believe that there exist, in Brazil, incredibly gifted children with potential that might never be realised through lack of opportunity. Through the St. Paul’s Foundation Scholarship Programme, we aim to fund a minimum of two scholars per year to complete their education at St. Paul’s.
“We want excellent students who have the right attitude, drive and commitment to benefit from the opportunities offered by the scholarship programme and to contribute to the school”, states Mr James Wilkinson, the foundation’s chairman.
