BURSARIES

Parents of children registered at SNAP Academy can apply for bursaries to support the school fees of their children. The allocation of bursaries will be subject to availability of funds, and application of the parents.

This is the process for Bursary Applications for SNAP Academy.

  1. Application Process

    1. Bursary application process for SNAP Academy

    Parents should submit a letter detailing the background of the child and intervention required, their need for funding, income and expenditure statement, as well as proof of income (3 months bank statements and salary slip) to the SNAP Governing Body Bursary Committee. Any application will be subject to the availability of surplus funds once the budgeted operational expenses of the school have been paid and in the sole discretion of the Governing Body’s Bursary Committee.

    1.1.1. In making a final decision towards the allocation of funding, SNAP Academy further considers the participation of parents at fundraising and other events during the school year. Points for involvement are accumulated as follows – see criteria:

    1.1.4 The SNAP Academy Bursary committee shall be entitled to evaluate the bursaries awarded (if any) on a monthly basis, taking into consideration the criteria.

    Over and above awarded bursaries for children who require financial assistance, parents who assist in selling tickets for fundraising events will also be incentivised per event. Each event will carry its own merits in terms of allocated free seats for e.g. a free seat at the Gala Fundraiser, an entry into a lucky draw and will be communicated when information about the event is sent out to the parent database.
