French Scholarship Foundation

The French Scholarship Foundation (FSF) is a young and dynamic Registered Charity created in 2015 whose objective is to provide financial support for school fees to families facing temporary financial hardship. The FSF supports children of any nationality both at CFBL and LIL Winston Churchill.

Having recently benefited from a kind donation, FSF can now broaden its actions to help pupils continue their education in those schools.

Families from both schools with financial needs may submit an online application.

The Foundation handles all applications in an impartial and confidential manner. For more information on their financial assistance policy or for any questions, please check the FSF website
