Coinciding with St. Peter’s School’s 50th Anniversary, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence. These grants are merit-based and aim to support those students who have excellent academic and non-academic achievements. They intend to avoid limited resources being an obstacle to completing the two school years of Bachillerato (Pre-U) at St. Peter’s School.
Please note that these scholarships are aimed at students who are not yet studying at St. Peter’s.
Every school year the grant will bear the name of a former pupil who stood out not only for their academic merits but also for other qualities. Tatiana Sisquella is the first former pupil to be thus honored by the St. Peter’s Scholarship for Excellence 2015-16.
