Founders Scholarship Program

for Corporate Sponsored Students

In 1960, Mr. Fred and Mrs. Sigrid Ott founded LAS to provide expatriate children, from around the world, with a high quality, university preparatory education in a caring, family-centered environment in a unique location. In honor of its founders, Leysin American School established the Founders Scholarship Program to continue to make that same educational experience available as the demand and cost for such an experience has risen dramatically.  

Designed to help students and their families bridge the gap between their parent’s employer’s boarding school tuition programs and the cost of full tuition at LAS. Scholarship awards will be made based on merit and financial need. Each Scholarship is renewable at the discretion of LAS and dependent upon the continuation of the parent’s employer’s boarding school tuition program.

Students should complete the standard application process and will then be requested to complete a separate application for the scholarship if they are offered a place at LAS. Once the completed scholarship application has been received, the Admissions & Financial Aid Committee will evaluate the student’s past academic performance, teacher recommendations, student essay, involvement in extracurricular activities and community service to establish the level of scholarship

All scholarship recipients are expected to make significant positive contributions to the LAS Community both inside and outside the classroom.  

Additional financial aid and scholarships may be available to qualified applicants.
