Ds Scholarship

The École Expands Scholarship Program

The school will award more scholarships to students to meet the growing demand for bilingual education in New York City.

For the 2022-2023 school year, the school, an independent nursery through eighth grade in Flatiron County, is expanding its scholarship program. This will enable more students to benefit from its dual French-American curriculum.

The school, which doubled its elementary and middle school rooftops in January 2020, can now enroll more children and will allocate $1.5 million to its scholarship fund. In conjunction with more space, the school has decided to expand its tuition offering due to the growing need and demand for high-quality bilingual education in New York City.

How to apply for the school scholarship

The school’s tuition fees range from $38,400 to $39,800. The funding each child receives depends on the specific family situation. Here are the application criteria:

  • Existing school students and new students can apply
  • Awards are based on financial need, diversity and merit
  • Students entering Grade 3 in 2022 must know how to speak and write French
  • Parents should be willing to make the education of their children a priority

“We, like many parents, know the value of bilingual education. This is why the school wants to enable families to provide a truly bilingual education for their children,” explained Philip and Lawrence Rowe, the school’s beneficiaries. “Our distinctive French-American dual programme, which truly goes beyond bilingualism through the wonderful blending of both French and American curricula, prepares students for the next step in their education, whether it be in a public or private school, here in the United States, in France, or in the outside “.

An average of 20 percent of families in the school will receive financial assistance through the school’s scholarship program. The program is open to every family, regardless of nationality, and is complementary to scholarships offered to French citizens attending schools accredited by the French government through the consulate in New York.

The school was founded in 2009 as the École Internationale de New York. The school integrates the French and American education systems into its curricula in an effort to grow an international community of students.

There is no strict application deadline, and the results of the application process will be announced on a rolling basis.
