FOUNDATION (ALL CAMPUSES)

Ecolint Covid-19 Solidarity Fund

Whilst our school community has shown creativity and resilience while moving from our campuses to online learning, it has been through a trying past few months. The Covid-19 pandemic is not affecting all Ecolint families equally and some of them even face the possibility of having to withdraw their children on account of financial pressures caused by these unprecedented and challenging times.

That is why we have decided to offer the opportunity to families, staff, alumni and friends who are willing and able to donate to a newly created Ecolint Covid-19 Solidarity Fund. The assistance provided by this fund will be used for short-term financial relief to help students continue their studies at Ecolint.

A gift of any amount will make a difference and the care and kindness of our community towards those in need will best be measured in participation.

Scholarship Programme
CHF 120,000 per student over a 3 year period / ref : 3996 - FDN Scholarship / Ongoing

In 1929, thanks to the generosity of the Forstall family, the first scholarship was offered to 15 students to allow them to study at Ecolint. These original scholarship students obviously benefited from the novel and visionary educational experience Ecolint had to offer, but they also enriched the school immeasurably, with positive repercussions that are still felt to this day.

Today, we aim to relaunch a scholarship programme for students who have experienced hardship and come from backgrounds not represented at Ecolint today, who show exceptional promise and potential, who have demonstrated qualities that would enrich the school and who would be unable to attend without a full scholarship.

The Ecolint Scholarship Programme will give students the international outlook and qualifications to enable them to continue studying and live as international citizens wherever they choose to settle. Contact us

Guest Speakers Series

Based in a safe, peaceful and prosperous environment, Ecolint is determined that its students never lose sight of the radically different realities that so many others in the world experience on a daily basis. As a result, we feel it is important to expose them to first hand testimony from people with personal stories that challenge their world view. The Guest Speakers Series is the ideal means for this, and talks have so far covered topics as diverse and wide ranging as environmental issues, race relations, human and civil rights, conflict and reconciliation, science, homelessness and even philosophy and history.
