Applications are now being accepted f0r students entering Grades 9 or 10 in August 2016
2016 – 2017 High School Scholarships
These scholarships provide financial support for outstanding Kenyan students, who otherwise could not afford tuition, for the High School years including but not limited to the IB Diploma.
The specific aim is to provide opportunities for low to middle income Kenyan students to participate in an academically rich and culturally diverse experience that will open the doors to university admission (and potentially further scholarship support) to the best universities in the world.
Our High School program spans grades 9-12 and follows an August – May academic schedule. Given transitional issues related to moving from the Kenyan school system to ISK, as well as the inherent rigors of the IB Diploma program, applicants must be entering grade 9 or 10 to be eligible.
Scholarship recipients are entitled to a 100% reduction in tuition fees, the admission fee, bus fee, and the IB exam fees.
Applications are screened by a scholarship committee and awarded to the recipients by April 2015. Financial need is assessed upon completion of ISK’s family finance disclosure form (including relevant supporting documentation).
Eligibility Requirements for the High School scholarship:
Selection for the scholarships is competitive and applications are based on the following criteria:
- Kenyan citizenship

- Fluency in English (oral & written)
