Updated 23 Feb 2021

Have you looked at the price tag for international education in Singapore and gasped? Many parents are shocked by the high tuition costs associated with international schools in Singapore. Still, it’s important to remember that there are resources available to help make an excellent education more attainable.

Global Indian International School (GIIS) offers a premium education at a moderate price point, and provides scholarships to students in Grades 1 through 12. Their robust scholarship programme affords opportunities for students who excel academically and in other aspects of their lives. Deserving students can secure scholarships for up to 80 percent of their tuition costs.

GIIS is known for its student-centric pedagogy and its modern educational approach. Students not only benefit from a rigorous academic curriculum, but they also enjoy many hands-on learning experiences that help them develop the skills they need to succeed in a dynamic, interconnected economy.

Currently, there are four scholarships available at GIIS.
