COVID-19 Relief Fund for Fall 2020 Enrollment

The COVID-19 Relief Fund is a one-time support program for the 2020-21 academic year, aiming to help families whose financial circumstances are temporarily altered due to COVID-19. The maximum family award is €5,000. Those who require assistance beyond this level should consider applying for a TASIS Foundation Scholarship.

Families must be residents of Portugal at the time of application.

Application Process
• Complete the TASIS Portugal admissions process
• Complete the application form in its entirety (available within the OpenApply application system - see a sample here)
• Submit a motivation letter explaining the anticipated reduction in family income for 2020 (1 page maximum) and statement of support/supporting document(s) from employer, accountant, or other relevant person(s) verifying a change in financial circumstance

Application Review Process & Timeline
• Applications will be reviewed by committee at the end of every month.
• In the case of divorced or separated parents, it is the expectation of the School that both parents will contribute to the child’s education. Financial information is required from both parents.


Calculating a School's True Cost

When calculating and comparing school costs, it's important to consider everything that touches your child each day. That means: 

  • meals and snacks,
  • supervised care before and after school,
  • field trips,
  • books and instructional materials, and 
  • extracurricular activities

When you're looking at tuition, be sure to include these costs in your calculations. Daily meal plans can add up, as can after-school care.

Are the costs of books, instruments, and other instructional materials accounted for? Finally, compare the cost of application fees,  registration fees and capital or building fees. Are they one-time or yearly fees? 

These items can impact your first year (and often additional years') payment(s) substantially.
