The International Student Leadership Scholarship is dedicated to awarding partial or full scholarships to selected students from a variety of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. These scholarships were created to support children who might otherwise not have the opportunity to benefit from our high quality international education.

The level of scholarship awarded is based on financial need. They cover a proportion of ISH school fees and include all educational resources. There is no repayment obligation.


Scholarships are awarded to students entering either Grade 10 or 11. Candidates must have permanent residential status in Finland. They must also fulfill the school’s admissions requirements. Families are asked to provide proof of financial need.
