For Donors


Below we provided an overview of the ISR Academic Scholarship Programme. If you should have any questions regarding the programme or making a donation, please don't hesitate to contact us anytime.

Support two students per school year 

- and enable them to access an excellent international education.

Donations to the ISR Academic Scholarship Programme fund will go towards up to two academically-minded students who would ordinarily not be in a position to afford an international education, each school year.

The recipients will join ISR in Grade 10, where they will receive a tailored English language programme alongside normal tuition. This will prepare and enable them to thrive in the academically challenging IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.

Following the assessments, the selection committee will review all applicants and will invite selected candidates to an interview at ISR. The students and families will then be notified of the outcome of their applications.

Students who are awarded a scholarship will be required to confirm the family's financial status through submitting copies of the annual tax return. 

Once evidenced that the student has met all the requirements, a formal off of place and the financial scholarship award will be made.

The scholarship is for students joining in Grade 10. These students will then continue through the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.
