Terms and Conditions

  • Scholarships will be awarded on merit, following the Scholarship Examination and interview.
  • An invitation to attend an interview will not necessarily mean a scholarship will be offered.
  • Acceptance of a scholarship offer will require payment of the non-refundable Acceptance Fee and any tuition fee due.
  • Acceptance and payment of all amounts will be required by the due date or the offer will be withdrawn.
  • The Application Fee will be refunded should the child be successful in receiving an Academic Scholarship and joins AIS community.
  • Parents are responsible to pay all amounts owing to the school that are not covered by the Scholarship.
  • Scholarships will be awarded on the basis that the student will maintain high standards of academic achievement, participate to the best of their ability in school activities, and adheres to the school’s policies and rules.
  • With the new status as a Scholar comes significant responsibility. Not only will the student need to maintain academic excellence but he/she must also set high standards for the peers in all areas of school life. This means contributing and supporting our school community at all times, in some cases publicly. This may involve participating and presenting in certain school events, writing articles for various publications, providing positive testimonials and other reasonably requested activities. After graduation from AIS, we expect the student to also be an active member of our alumni network.
  • The scholarship will be reviewed in May each year. If grade results are maintained, the scholarship will be renewed for the following year. The School may request the student to take the annual Scholarship Exam if the School feels it is necessary to moderate her academic progress
  • In return for this merit scholarship benefit, the family should be aware that the School’s expectation is that the student remains at AIS through to the completion of his/her IB Diploma. Should you withdraw from school at any time prior to formal graduation from school, then the School reserves the right to obtain appropriate remedies; including repayment of the financial scholarship amounts of the most recent three (3) school years, and/or withholding school documentation and assistance (e.g. school reports, transcripts and reference letters).

Nsouli Scholars

A Transformative Opportunity

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.
