Bridge International Academies is pleased to offer Sponsorship at Bridge!
Sponsorship at Bridge covers the cost of academy fees for one year. It can also cover additional fees, such as the cost of a pupil’s academy uniform or the cost of hot meals at the academy. It is a very generous sponsorship that is funded through the kindness of donors from all over the world who believe in the potential of Bridge pupils.
Bridge pupils are able to apply for the 2016 Sponsorship at Bridge if:
- They completed Term 3 2015 at Bridge.
- They were ranked in the top 5 of their entire class in their academy based on Term 3 2015 End-term Exams.
- They have no outstanding fees that are due.
APPLICATION & ELIGIBILITY
If a pupil meets the requirements, they can apply for Sponsorship at Bridge on the Bridge International Academies website. The application entails basic information about the pupil, a short essay, and a photo of the pupil. All parts must be completed in full in order for the application to be submitted. Once submitted, each pupil’s application will be reviewed in depth. Pupils will receive an SMS stating if their application is eligible – or not – for Sponsorship. Eligibility will be based on the accuracy of their information and the quality of their essay. Applications without a photo, essay, or any of the other information will be disqualified.
Eligibility does not guarantee that a child will be awarded sponsorship. As mentioned, sponsorships are donor funded. We can only award as many sponsorships as we have donors. Because donors may decide to sponsor a pupil at any moment during the year, rather than only sponsoring pupils at the start of the year, we will be matching pupils on a rolling basis throughout the course of the 2016 calendar year. We will notify eligible pupils as soon as we find them a donor during the 2016 calendar year.
Applications can be submitted throughout the year. Sponsorships will be awarded on a rolling basis as donors are found throughout the course of the 2016 calendar year.
Again, it is important to remember that Sponsorship at Bridge is funded by donors from around the world; it is not funded by Bridge International Academies itself. Sponsorship is not guaranteed and will be rewarded on a rolling basis, as donors are found and matched will eligible applicants throughout the course of the 2016 calendar year. Sponsorship last for 1 year (3 terms). When applying, pupils must understand that their sponsorship application does not guarantee that they will be rewarded with a sponsorship. Pupils who apply for Sponsorship at Bridge are expected to continue paying their fees, until we are able to match them with a donor.
