This programme honours our former Directors, Dr Max Husmann and Dr Josef Ostermayer, who, throughout the decades after our foundation, created the unique spirit of Montana: a nexus of Swiss and international cultures, which offers our students not only an academic education at the highest Swiss and international standards, but also nurtures them in their growth as responsible individuals, who will face the challenges of our society with openness and guided by strong values. It is this philosophy that has led us to today's Montana - My Place to Grow … ®
The Montana Scholarship Programme strives to enable students who would not be able to join our school to join the boarding programme at Institut Montana Zugerberg. Annually, a limited number of scholarship places will be offered throughout the admissions process.
Criteria for the Montana Scholarship
To continue the unique culture of Montana, as a Swiss-International Boarding School for the long term and following Dr Max Husmann's and Dr Josef Ostermayer's vision, is the goal of a Montana Scholarship. It is open to newly joining students, who
- can make a contribution to the school community pursuant to Montana's philosophy.
- achieve grades at their current school being satisfactory or better.
- will attend to the school as weekly boarding students (5-days, leaving school on Friday afternoons, returning Sunday evening).
Extent of a Montana Scholarship
A Montana scholarship is generally issued for the complete duration of attending the school until graduation. It can be reconsidered due to severe disciplinary infringements or an ongoing decline of grades achieved at school.
Montana scholars attend the boarding programme, from Sunday evening until Friday afternoon, for substantially reduced school fees. Further expenses are paid normally. The reduced fee is adjusted annually, as for the regular school fees.
To allow the long-term continuation of this programme, Montana scholars pledge to, according to their personal situation, repay an amount of CHF 10'000.- to the Montana scholarship fund over the course of 10 years from after their graduation at Institut Montana Zugerberg.
