(CMR) Cayman International School has increased the number of scholarships offered to Caymanian students at the high school level for the 2022/2023 school year.
The newly-named CIS Cayman Citizen Scholarship Program will offer partial and full-tuition scholarships for up to 12 students in grades 9 through 12.
“While candidates must be Caymanian in order to qualify, the scholarship program is primarily aimed for new students to CIS, who must apply to the program prior to being accepted into the school,” Head of Admissions and Community Relations Rita Imparato said.
Students going to ninth, 10th, or 11th grade can apply for the scholarships.
The full scholarships cover the tuition in full until students graduate. However, students must remain in good academic standing and be positive role models to the school and community to hold the scholarship until graduation.
Over the years, recipients of CIS scholarships have done well in their career choice. The first recipient is now working at the Appleby law firm, while the second recipient now works for Dart as an accountant. The fifth recipient, David Lee, is now an attorney at Walkers. Current scholarship recipients continue to do well academically and in the community.
CIS caters to the full development of students, offering more than academics. Students not only have the option to do the International Baccalaureate Diploma study program. They also have the opportunity to get involved in sports, the fine arts and the performing arts, and other clubs and activities. Students are also required to become involved in various community projects.
Students interested in applying for the program may contact Cayman International School for information or visit caymaninternationalchool.org. Applicants will be notified by 30 May if they are successful.
