Investing in Students’ Futures
Outstanding students deserve exceptional opportunities, but that isn’t always the case. At ISK, we appreciate the extraordinary efforts of these learners, and that’s why we have a scholarship program dedicated to Kenyan youth.
An ISK Scholarship:
- Gives students an outstanding international education in a culturally diverse environment;
- Nurtures students’ creativity and passions;
- Gives scholarship students a sense of inclusion and belonging among students from around the world;
- Opens doors to the world’s best universities;
- Gives students confidence and independence in how they act, communicate, create, learn, and solve problems;
- Inspires and nurtures extraordinary learners to create solutions for tomorrow’s challenges;
- Allows students to become exceptional members of society and eventually give back to the community.
Please note that Scholarship Applications for the 2023-24 school year are closed.
The next Scholarship Application intake will begin in October 2023.
How It Works
The ISK Scholarship targets low to middle income Kenyan students who would otherwise be unable to afford our tuition and fees. We pay for 100% of their costs in High School, including the IB Diploma program, school fees, admission fees, and bus fees. As long as students maintain good academic performance and behavior, we will invest in their creative, personal and academic development.
Applications are screened by a scholarship committee and awarded to the recipients by April of each year. Financial need is assessed upon completion of a Finance Disclosure form including relevant supporting documentation.
The value of respect for each other and for Kenya is evident at ISK, as is a commitment to giving back to the community. Our scholarship program for Kenyan students, together with a broad and dedicated service-learning program which serves our local and national community, have shaped our school values since inception and continues today.
High School Scholarships for Kenyan citizens are based on merit and proven financial need. The Scholarship is catered to students entering Grade 9 or Grade 10.
The Beacon Scholarship
The Beacon Scholarship is a Changemaker programme that offers access for financially disadvantaged students to top tier secondary schools in their home country, and undergraduate programmes of study at world class universities in the UK. The programme includes leadership training and development, a strong Mentoring structure, and a goal-setting performance management system.
The Stories in Their Own Words
Each Scholarship student has a different story to tell, but one thing they agree on is the opportunities that opened up to them once they qualified for the ISK Scholarship.
