Scholarship (French nationals only)

French students from the « Petite Section » kindergarten can benefit a scholarship if they are at least 3 years old by the first day of school year. This scholarship is granted by the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) with an opinion of Scholarship Local Commission (Commission Locales de Bourses). The financial aid might be asked for the purpose of paying school fees, lunch fees or school bus fees.

The request is made year by year (it is not automatically renewed from one year to another).

Concerning the families who are now living in Thailand, a scholarship file is to be completed by February for the following school year.

The second round of attribution takes place in October for new residents and those who submitted an application form in February of which the situation might have profoundly evolved,. The parents have to inform the school Accounting Office of their request so that a schedule of particular payment will be arranged for them.

The LFIB informs parents via e-mail of opening date of the two scholarship campaigns.

Further information about financial aid is available on the website of the Embassy of France
