Successful Class Afloat applicants may apply to the Class Afloat Foundation for Scholarships.
Applicants for the Class Afloat Scholarship are assessed for their intellectual and personal achievement in terms character, academic success, physical vigour and commitment to service, and leadership. The number and amount of each scholarship award will be determined according to the success of the Foundation at meeting its annual fundraising targets. As a guide, scholarship awards are likely to fund up to half the annual Class Afloat full year tuition fee.
In 2012 the Foundation has made a commitment to raising funds for awards based on academic and personal distinction but also for candidates that have a demonstrated need for financial aid to participate in Class Afloat 2013-14.
The Foundation will review and assess all applications and award the scholarships.
Application Deadline: March 1st
The Class Afloat Foundation will announce the winning candidates on May 01, 2013
