The Scholarship Program

The scholarship program began in 1997 to sponsor students at all level of schooling. High school and university recipients have to maintain a high grade point average in order to continue their scholarships. A swedish foundation funds most of our university scholarship. All others are funded by the generosity of individual donors who "adopt" young scholars with efforts from our representative in Australia, Paulette Kay, and Marilyn Murray of the Rainbows for Children. The Bali Hati Foundation supported more than 1100 students since 1997.

Bali Hati School

Bali Hati School was started as a kindergarten in 1999 and now offers elementary grades 1 through 6. Plans are in development for a secondary school with fundraising activities to cover capital costs. Potential donors are invited to contact us for more information including opportunities for naming rights.

In july 2006, at its first 6th grade graduation, the school was ranked No. 1 in Ubud and No. 7 in Gianyar Regency, in association with SDN 6 Mas, from approximately 300 elementary schools based on the students' achievement in the government's national graduation examination.

While following the National Curriculum, the school enriches its child-centered, interactive learning program with English and computer classes, class projects, public speaking, cooking, arts and crafts, story telling and field trips. A bilingual program in the elementary school begins in July 2007.

Subsidized tuition and scholarships are available for students who come from low-income families. Students are selected by a Scholarship Committee following an enrollment test and a home visit. At least 50% of students at Bali Hati School are on scholarships.

A Sister Schools Program was begun in 2004 between Bali Hati School and the Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School in Australia. Potential sister schools worldwide are invited to contact us for details.
