Financial Aid for 2018-2019

(Versión en español a continuación del inglés)

We are pleased to announce the application period for Nido's financial aid program is now open for families wishing to apply for the 2018-2019 school year. Nido is committed to making an outstanding education accessible for our current and prospective families who value the Nido Way of teaching and learning. The financial aid program is funded through donations from current families who value this commitment and from the Nido endowment for financial aid, begun by the Board of Directors in 2016.

Financial aid covers a maximum of 50% (except in extraordinary circumstances) of a student's tuition fees and is assessed each year based on the family's financial situation. Financial aid is available to both new and current families. At the moment, 9 of the 13 students on financial aid were already studying at Nido when they applied for aid.

Nido is now accepting applications for financial aid from current Nido families. Program information and application guidelines can be found online. Application deadlines are as follows:

• Applications, including all supporting documentation, from current Nido families must be submitted by February 15, 2018.

• Applications, including all supporting documentation, from families new to Nido must be submitted by March 15, 2018.

Priority will be given to applications submitted by the deadline. Applications submitted after the deadline will only be considered if there are funds remaining after the evaluation of applications submitted by the deadline. If you have questions or to request the application, please contact financialaid@nido.cl.


Nos complace anunciar que el período de postulación para el programa de ayuda financiera de Nido ya está abierto para las familias que deseen inscribirse para el año escolar 2018-2019. Nido está comprometido con hacer que una educación sobresaliente sea accesible para nuestras familias actuales y potenciales quienes valoran la forma de enseñanza y aprendizaje de Nido. El programa de ayuda financiera se financia a través de donaciones de familias actuales que valoran este compromiso y del "endowment" (fondo de dotación) para el programa de ayuda financiera de Nido, iniciado por el Directorio en 2016.

La ayuda financiera cubre un máximo del 50% (excepto en circunstancias extraordinarias) de la colegiatura de un alumno y se evalúa cada año en función de la situación financiera de la familia. La ayuda financiera está disponible tanto para las familias nuevas como para las actuales. Actualmente, 9 de los 13 estudiantes con ayuda financiera ya estaban estudiando en Nido cuando solicitaron ayuda.

Nido está actualmente aceptando postulaciones a ayuda financiera de las familias actuales de Nido. La información del programa y las pautas para la postulación se pueden encontrar en línea. Los plazos de postulación son los siguientes:

• Las solicitudes, incluida toda la documentación de respaldo, de las familias actuales de Nido deben ser enviadas antes del 15 de febrero de 2018.

• Las solicitudes, incluida toda la documentación de respaldo, de las familias nuevas a Nido deben ser enviadas antes del 15 de marzo de 2018.

Se dará prioridad a las solicitudes presentadas antes de la fecha límite.
