ISP Scholarships

The ISP Scholarship Programme offers life-changing opportunities to exceptionally talented students for whom an ISP education would be out of financial reach. Our goal is to empower these students to reach their full potential and join our community of curious, competent, compassionate changemakers.

Currently, we are supporting 16 scholars at ISP, with our goal being to offer 20 scholarships each year. Read more here.
