St. Peter’s school announces the 5th Edition of the Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence

The Maria Rosa Culell scholarships aim at supporting excellent students by offering them the opportunity to study the IB Diploma Programme at St. Peter’s School Barcelona, ranked as the best school in Spain by Forbes.

Laia Gatell, one of our students who received the scholarship, explains it thusly: “this grant is an opportunity for students like her to complete the International Baccaulareate in a school like St. Peter’s. It empowered me to follow my dreams”. She is now a medical student.

Students must have completed the necessary education in Spain (ESO) during the school year 2021-22, or equivalent elsewhere, to apply for this scholarships. Candidates can send their applications here: and provide the documentation required before the 15th of May. The scholarships cover the two years of the diploma program, but at the end of each school year, the Scholarships Committee assesses a student’s personal and academic progress in order to renew their grant.

In the previous edition of the scholarships, the prestigious scholarships were given to two sisters. The following is María Chavinet Jacas’s testimonial, as well as her mother Mónica’s, on what these scholarships have meant to them.
