Transylvania offers many scholarship/">scholarships for designated groups of students. To apply for these scholarships, students must submit their application for admission by February 1, 2021 for enrollment beginning in fall 2021.
These scholarship/">scholarships provide students with a minimum guaranteed scholarship based on their academic involvement with a high school program. These awards cannot be combined with other merit-based scholarships but provide a baseline for academic awarding. If a student qualifies for a higher merit-based scholarship, the higher amount will be awarded.
International Baccalaureate Programme participants can receive scholarships ranging from $10,000/year (diploma courses) to $18,000/year (full diploma candidates).
