KIS Founder’s Scholarships for IB Diploma Students

Kazakhstan International School is proud to announce the inauguration of the KIS Founder’s Scholarship programme. These awards reflect our commitment to ensuring that students with outstanding potential are given the opportunity to succeed, irrespective of their financial background.

KIS Founder’s Scholarships are awarded to outstanding students annually in March. The scholarships are available to current and prospective KIS students who wish to enroll in the KIS IB Diploma Programme, i.e. in Grade 11. There are six scholarships to be offered: 2 bronze, 3 silver and 1 gold.

If there is no suitable candidate in a given year, no scholarship will be awarded.


The aim of the Founder’s Scholarship is to recognise and reward students who exemplify the KIS motto, More than Academics, by excelling in both academic achievement and contribution to school life beyond their formal academic studies.


Depending on merit, the scholarship award is either 50% or 100% of the tuition fees for the grade level that the student will be studying in, for Grades 11-12 (i.e. for the duration of the Diploma Programme).

Continuation of the award into the second academic year is contingent on the student maintaining a high level of academic performance and co-curricular contribution. Should the student’s performance fall short, a meeting will be held with the student, his or her parents, and the relevant Senior Leadership Team members. An action plan will be implemented to support the student. If this is not successful within the agreed timeframe, the award will be withdrawn immediately.

Student Testimonials

I’ve been a student of various educational institutions in Almaty, but my experience with KIS was truly exceptional. From the very beginning of the two-year IB DP course that I took, I felt the freedom to embrace my uniqueness, progress forward, and prioritize areas that were important for me specifically. The support I got from the teaching staff and my peers played a vital role in my confidence in my desired university education and the career I want to pursue in the future. The IB DP is not by any means an easy program, as it puts a lot of pressure and responsibility on the student to be in charge of their future. For me, this was a great chance to test myself and find ways to grow personally and academically. Considering my experiences, I cannot think of a better place to graduate than KIS Almaty.
