Dubai school launches scholarship programme for Grade 11 students

The programme launched by Swiss International School Dubai, offers up to 50% day school fees for deserving students  

Dubai, Apr 04, 2024: Swiss International School Dubai, (SISD), a bilingual IB curriculum school and one of the only boarding schools in the UAE, has launched scholarships for deserving Grade 11 students. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) Scholarship scheme offers up to 50% day school fees for deserving students. The aim is to assist them in fulfilling their potential.  

The IBDP Scholarship – available to students studying the IBDP Programme – provides financial assistance, and opens the doors to a world-class education, unparalleled learning experiences, and endless possibilities for personal and academic growth. 

The KHDA recently announced a general school fee increase of 2.6%, with some schools seeing a fee increase of 5.2%. This means education in the UAE is becoming even more expensive for families, making scholarships – and access to them – more important. 

By covering a significant portion of tuition fees, scholarships ensure deserving students can access top education regardless of their financial circumstances.  

Ruth Burke, Principal, SISD says, “Perhaps the most significant benefit of academic scholarships is the transformative impact they have on students’ lives. By investing in education, scholarships pave the way for a brighter future, not just for the individual recipients but for their families and communities as well. Empowered with knowledge and opportunity, scholarship recipients become agents of change, driving innovation and progress in their respective fields.” 

An SISD scholarship comes with myriad additional benefits, including access to extracurricular activities, leadership programmes, world-class sporting facilities and cultural exchanges.
