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.

For the start of 2024-25, the International School Yangon established five strategic objectives. Three of these are:

  • The ISY community is safe in an inclusive environment where individualism is fostered and valued through opportunities to learn and celebrate together, and where students thrive by playing an active role in decision-making.
  • 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. The program truly supports our mission of being a community of compassionate global citizens and our vision to develop lifelong learners who will be a positive force for change in the world.
