Bursaries


SIS has a long history of providing financial assistance to students and their families. While the costs of running the school requires full school fees from those that are able to do so, each year the school does try to provide a number of bursaries to existing families who have encountered financial difficulties.

To be considered for a bursary, students must have completed at least one full academic year. If your family's financial situation threatens the ability of your child to continue attending SIS, please download our Bursary Application Handbook for guidelines regarding application.

Nsouli Scholars


 

The Nsouli Scholars Programme


The Nsouli Scholars Programme is an exciting global initiative that promises to transform lives by enabling 50 extraordinary students at any one time to attend any of Inspired’s prestigious schools on a full scholarship for the duration of their education. The ambition is that the scholarship will provide hundreds of children with an opportunity to receive a truly transformative education.

By opening this path to exceptional individuals, we hope to expand our community, and to empower children of all backgrounds with unrivalled opportunities in academics, sports, the arts and extracurricular activities. In this sense, the Nsouli Scholars Programme is an investment both in education and in shaping the leaders of tomorrow.

This generous endowment honours Nadim Nsouli, who founded Inspired in 2013 as a definitive statement of excellence in private international education. In recognition of Mr Nsouli’s Lebanese heritage and Inspired’s commitment to inclusivity, several scholarships will be awarded to individuals of Lebanese origin.
