It is the aim of the German School Association to provide education to German speaking children regardless of financial status.

The following criteria serve as guideline:

1) The yearly gross family income should be below 7 Mio Yen, if one child is attending DSTY

2) The yearly gross family income should be below 8,5 Mio Yen, if two children are attending DSTY

 Assets of the parents/legal guardians:

The worldwide total estate/assets (e.g. real estate, shareholdings, share of a company) must be disclosed.

Every application will be examined individually. The School Board of the German School Tokyo Yokohama Foundation will decide case by case.

Applications for bursaries must be made principally before admission or the start of the school year, in which discount is requested. Applications must be submitted in person.
The application can be downloaded here (available in German only). For further information please contact the Head of Administration of the School, Ms. Knott.

Corporate Contribution Plan:

For corporations we have tax-exemptable donation plans.  The participation would be highly appreciated.  More details are available by Chief Administrative Officer of the School.
