IB Diploma Scholarship

Each year, IST awards five merit- and need-based scholarships to Tanzanian students who would like to pursue the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. 

Successful candidates are awarded a two-year, full-tuition scholarship covering IB I and II (Grades 11 and 12). This programme is designed for students who have been successful in following the Tanzanian national curriculum through Form IV and who would like to pursue the IB Diploma.

Applications are accepted from January through mid-February of each year for admission to the following academic year which begins in August. To apply for the scholarship programme, look for announcements in the newpapers and visit this website in January of each year to download the application forms and to learn more.
