IBDP Scholarship Programme

NEW IBDP Scholarships Now Open for August 2019

St. Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia is now offering new International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) scholarships to deserving students entering Year 12 in August 2019. In line with our school values and traditions, the school is offering this unique scholarship to provide talented and capable students who wish to embark on the IBDP the opportunity to be a part of the school and to flourish under the guidance of its teachers. Our scholarships are awarded based on a combination of both merit and means-tested outcomes.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a 2-year educational programme primarily aimed at students aged 16-18. Success in the IBDP offers students the opportunity to gain access to the best universities in the world. From our first graduated cohort, 2 students obtained 44 out of 45 points and over 30% of them scored 40 points and above. In addition to this, 46% of our scholars went on to receive scholarships from foreign universities. They are currently enrolled at New York University Abu Dhabi, Imperial College London, University of Pennsylvania in the USA, University of British Columbia in Canada, Tsinghua University in China, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and Osaka University in Japan, to name a few.

We are now inviting qualified students from different high school backgrounds such as the IGCSE and SPM as well as other equivalent courses to apply for our IBDP Scholarships. For SPM/IGCSE students taking their exams in November 2019, they may also apply for the scholarship if they have excellent results from their recent forecast/trial examination.

Merit-based Scholarships:  

Our merit-based and means-tested scholarships will cover between 25-100% of the tuition fees for the 2 year IBDP programme. Applicants are expected to be able to provide evidence of good academic performance and demonstrate active participation and leadership in co-curricular activities (music/sports/art) and service activities.

“If I were to pick one characteristic that a school ought to have, it would be this – it would have students who love to enter its gates.” John Marcus Liew Jin

“I am very grateful to have been offered a scholarship to further pursue my studies in SJIIM. It does not only provide me with the opportunity to study the vigorous yet prestigious IB Diploma Programme, but has also given me a chance to continue being a part of this warm community.” Ter Shin Huey
