Financial Aid

As an international school, ISH exists to serve the educational needs of families whose employment brings them to Hamburg and who wish their children to have an English-language education. 

Up to 25% of students at the International School of Hamburg, whose families face financial constraints, can be admitted under certain conditions. The purpose of this programme is to ensure social diversity and to make the International School of Hamburg accessible to students with the interest and need for an international education, but who are unable to pay the full tuition. Entry under the 25% Clause is not automatic and depends upon the admission requirements set by the Board of the International School of Hamburg.
