The school’s scholarship program ensures that worthy Greek and international students, regardless of financial circumstance, may enroll in the Anatolia & Pinewood IBDP, either as day students or in our long-standing boarding school.

When applying for entry to the IBDP, you simply declare your wish to participate in the IBDP scholarship exam by completing the corresponding section of the application. In the space provided, you should choose the type of scholarship that you wish to compete for and, if required, submit additional documents.

Applying for an IBDP scholarship assumes that the student is able to participate in the scholarship exam in person. The scholarship exam is scheduled for Sunday April 21st.

Students who have demonstrated excellent academic performance in grades 9 and 10, satisfying one of the criteria listed below, are eligible to apply for a scholarship:

  • An average grade of “A” (90% or above) or equivalent, in an international school
  • An IB MYP average of 6 (out of 7) or above in an international school
  • An average of 18.5 or above in the 3rd form of Greek Gymnasio (9th grade), 18.1 and above in the first semester in the 1st form of Greek Lykeio (10th grade)


There may be some additional criteria regarding financial income, depending on the category they wish to be considered within (see below).

  • Students already on scholarship who meet the scholarship conditions DO NOT need to take part in the IBDP scholarship exams. Their scholarship percentage will automatically be transferred to the IB. They just need to inform the Scholarship and Enrollment Coordinator of their intention to continue their studies in the IBDP.
  • Students whose tuition is paid by a third party are eligible to take part in the exam and receive an honorary scholarship without tuition reduction.
  • Students who are currently attending either Anatolia or Pinewood as full pay students are only eligible for the merit-based scholarships.

Two kinds of scholarships are offered:

a) Scholarships that cover from 25% up to 100% of the annual tuition fees of the Program and are dependent upon both financial and academic criteria. More specifically:

  • Students with an annual family income that does not exceed a total of 26,000 euros may be awarded a scholarship that covers 100% of the tuition fees.
  • Students with an annual family income that does not exceed a total of 36,000 euros may be awarded a scholarship up to 75% of the tuition fees.
  • Students with an annual family income that does not exceed a total of 60,000 euros may be awarded a scholarship that covers from 25% to 50% of the tuition fees.

b) Scholarships that cover the amount of 10% of the annual tuition fees of the Program and are not based on any financial need. These scholarships serve as an acknowledgement of the student’s academic achievements and abilities. Those who are interested in being considered for this award should simply state it on their entrance application to the Program. They do not need to submit any further documents.

The Scholarship Committee reserves the right to visit the place of residence of candidates applying for a scholarship from 75% up to 100%.

Those who are interested in applying for scholarship under this category must submit, along with the necessary entrance-application documents, the following:

  • Copies of the “Ekatharistiko” (receipt of tax declarations submitted) issued by the Ministry of Finance for the tax declarations of the past two years, as well as a copy of the most recent property declaration (E9).
  • A letter from the parent/guardian of the candidate justifying the family’s financial situation and difficulties in covering the tuition fees and stating the amount of scholarship needed to allow the student’s attendance on the IB program.

Candidates must submit the necessary documents along with their application for enrollment to the program before the deadline, which is April 19th, 2024.

Scholarships are awarded initially for one year. They are renewed at the end of the first academic year only if the student has maintained the required grade average (36/42) and the financial status of the family has not changed.

The 2024 scholarship examination is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 21st.
