scholarship edouard

Meet our scholarship winners: Edouard

This year, CDL put up 4 academic scholarships to reward the outstanding attitude of 4 of our talented students, both academically and in their personal development and commitment to others. We received many applications which led to a tough competition. After careful consideration, we are pleased to present to you one by one our 4 winners. In this article, meet Edouard, a wonderful Maturité student who has greatly deserved this award. 

My name is Edouard, I am sixteen years old and I am in my final year of high school. I arrived at Collège du Léman in the sixth grade in the bilingual English section. I stayed there for the whole of Middle School, but then I decided to join the French section in 3ème in order to take the Swiss Maturité. This diploma interests me because I want to study in Switzerland. A Maturité diploma allows you to enter almost all Swiss universities. My ambition is to study at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and to join the Microtechnology department - a renowned department of the EPFL that trains highly versatile engineers.

The academic scholarship not only pushed me to do better academically but also motivated me to participate more in the extracurricular activities organised by the Collège du Leman. For example, I participated in the open days, where we had the opportunity to welcome new students and parents to the CDL. I have also been fully involved in the activities organised by the National Honor Society, such as tutoring.

This year, with the Swiss Maturité final exams, we learned team spirit because we all had to stick together to achieve excellence in our results.

We also learned to put our studies before leisure time in order to ensure a bright future.

The application procedure for the academic scholarship taught me a lot and gave me experience in writing a cover letter and presenting myself. I was also able to prepare myself for an interview and to speak in front of several people. These are assets that will serve me well in the future.

Looking back on my six years at Collège du Léman, my experience was very positive, both academically and socially. CDL encourages respect and diversity while integrating everyone into its values, and for this reason I would recommend this school to a friend.

I could not end this adventure without mentioning the investment of the teachers and the staff, which is constant, motivating and encouraging. I would like to thank them warmly here.
