Scholarship Program

As an IB World Continuum School focused on making the world a better place through our actions. To this end, ISL has a thriving and highly successful scholarship program. Our scholarship program provides educational opportunities to students from Latvia and positively broadens the diversity of our community as a whole.

For over 10 years ISL has been supporting high-achieving students from local community by giving them ISL scholarships. Mostly those have been Babite Secondary School students, neverthless there is also student from Riga 2nd Gymnasium, student from Riga French Lyceum and student from Agenskalns State Gymnasium currently holding schoolarship within ISL. So far 14 students have graduated within the ISL scholarship.

Graduated students have been accepted to: NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, University of Sussex, University of Waterloo, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and many others.

ISL will continue to offer scholarship to enter Grade 10 for two students every year – one scholarship will be reserved for the Babite Secondary School student and second will be available to a student from any other school in Latvia.

The scholarship admissions process will start every year in late February or early March. Announcements will be posted on our Facebook page, Instagram account and in schools around Latvia.
