VP Bali provides the opportunity for dedicated students to continue their higher education through our official scholarship program.
We aim to support our dedicated students with the option to continue their higher education, in the hope that they will one day take this knowledge and feed it back into the lives of Balinese children and the greater community. Through donations, individual sponsorships of students, and a portion our volunteer program fees, our dedicated students will be given the opportunity to continue his or her high school education.
For students to continue their education at Senior High schools in Bali, a payment of approximately IDR 450,000 (approximately USD35) per month must be paid per student for books and college fees. This contributes to the alarmingly high rate of 15-year-old adolescents not attending any formal education.
We currently have 120 students that receive a scholarship through VP Bali. Students are eligible for a scholarship if they have a 75 percent attendance record and have been a part of our program for a minimum of six months.
VP Bali can keep the sponsors up to date on the progress of their individually sponsored students via email. Of course, you are also more than welcome to visit your sponsored student directly through us.
The number of sponsored student is growing every semester. We are proud and honoured to introduce a selection of our scholarship recipients:
Our students are thrilled when they receive new materials to play and learn with. Therefore, we are happy to welcome donations from both volunteers and visitors!
