Scholarships and Financial Support
IB Diploma Scholarship
Each year, IST awards a limited number of merit- and need-based scholarships to Tanzanian students who would like to pursue the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme (IBDP).
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 (NECTA's CSEE) and who would like to pursue the IB Diploma.
