Christina McConnell Full Scholarship Programme for Ugandan Citizens

ISU invites outstanding Ugandan students, of secondary school age, for its Full Scholarship Programme.  The prospective candidates are students who are financially, socially, and economically disadvantaged.

Students need to demonstrate high scholastic and emotional maturity, be talented and gifted individuals and have the aptitude to thrive in an international setting and become future community and leaders in Uganda.

ISU will provide a scholarship for a successful candidate for a maximum of 3 ½ years. Due to the differences between the Ugandan and IB Programmes it is recommended that the student enter at the end of Grade 9 (S3) or the start of Grade 10 (S4).

All documentation will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and selection will be made by February each year, after the Uganda Certificate Examinations (UCE) results are announced. Please note applications for the 2019-2020 intake are now CLOSED. Only successful applicants will be contacted.
