OWIS Scholarship Programme

All students should have access to a world-class education that is needed for them to succeed in our global economy. To assist with this, your child may be able to benefit from an OWIS scholarship, if the required eligibility criteria is met 

At One World International School, we strive to create a multicultural community filled with students from different backgrounds with varied interests, and we want to give all students the opportunity to be a part of the OWIS community. With this in mind, we have created several scholarship programmes that support students who have demonstrated academic excellence and to provide eligible families with financial assistance for their child’s education.

At OWIS, we intend to continue our scholarship programme for many years to come. We want to instil a love of learning in our students, and we want our students to understand that their hard work will be rewarded. We know that access to education is critical to becoming a lifelong learner and are confident that our scholars will be global citizens who make valuable contributions to society.

We have a limited number of scholarships available and encourage you to apply early to receive our merit or means-based scholarships.

Hear from OWIS Scholars

My teachers at OWIS contributed a lot to my success. Throughout the 2 years, they always motivated every student to do their best and to never give up. They ensured we were well-prepared by giving us additional resources and study material.Joining OWIS has had a very positive impact on my life and I have gained a lot of confidence in myself because of the OWIS environment.

My biggest learning from taking the Cambridge IGCSE course has been that I should always give my best and make every lesson and assignment count. My teachers at OWIS were excellent in explaining concepts, some teachers gave us amazing tools to help us with our revision and all of them were really patient in answering my questions and clarifying my doubts.
