IGBIS is committed to providing a limited number of students who wish to study the MYP or DP the opportunity to join our diverse, vibrant and talented learning community, regardless of their socio-economic background. Our scholarships generally range between 25% to 75% of the annual tuition fees and are both merit and needs-based. All applications will be assessed and final decisions are made by our scholarship committee in line with our Scholarship Policy. In order to be eligible for a scholarship, applicants require a history of capable academic performance, however, we are interested in finding students who have passion and experience in areas outside the classroom in the areas of: Inclusion, Innovation, International Mindedness, Empowerment, Leadership, Service, Wellbeing, the Arts, Sports and/or Sustainability.
Interviews begin by mid-January on a rolling basis. Scholarships may be offered prior to the deadline, so applicants are encouraged to apply early. Please note that IGBIS reserves the right to change the timeline, annual budget, and criteria for granting scholarships from year to year.
