The ISY Scholarship Program


The purpose of the program is to provide a Myanmar National student entrance to ISY as a Grade 8 student with a scholarship that remains valid until graduation from Grade 12. There are two scholarships available every year starting in Grade 8.

In February of 2018, the International School Yangon established eight strategic objectives. Three of these are:

  • To establish a program of Inclusion to ensure differentiated instruction for all our students.
  • To be a leader in Service Learning, contributing to change in our community.
  • To celebrate Cultural Diversity promoting greater awareness of our host country culture.

The scholarship program helps us to achieve all three of these objectives. The program develops our ability to provide education for students with differing needs, allows us to positively contribute to the local community while at the same time bringing genuine cultural diversity to the school.
