Concord College Summer School offer a number of planned scholarships each year, open to all students aged 10-17 applying for a course in July or August to study English, Maths, Science or Economics (excluding the Oxbridge programme).
All of the scholarship programmes are aligned to the values of Concord Summer School, and promote the wide range of skills and talents that students possess. They provide students with the opportunity to study at our prestigious international summer school, through financial support towards the summer school fees.
Competitions are designed to enable students to be creative, encouraging students to submit a piece during the promotion in a style that suits their abilities and best fits the ‘theme’ of the scholarship being awarded.
A selection process will take place for each competition, taking into consideration originality, creativity, enthusiasm, style, language and persuasiveness. For the ‘open competitions’ there will be a minimum of one month promotion around the competition, enabling students plenty of time to hear about, prepare for and complete the project. This will be advertised on the Summer School website, Summer School social media sites and communicated to all former parents and all existing agents.
