Financial Aid Program

In order to enable as many families as possible to participate in the educational concept of Cologne International School,
the school offers a financial aid program within the scope of its economic possibilities and on the basis of the regulatory
school law requirements of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, for which families can apply within the inquiry process.

In order to maintain confidentiality, Cologne International School commissioned the tax consultancy firm Wieland Wirtschaftsprüfer und Steuerberater to examine the applications for the Financial Aid program.
