The AISL Harrow Scholarships Programme is the most prestigious award that is available across the AISL Harrow family. The first to be offered at a group level, it uniquely offers 100% fee and boarding remission for the full two-year A Level programme at Harrow for the academic year 2021/2022.
Following the official launch in January 2021, overwhelming response has been received from around the world. Hundreds of exceptionally talented students, from over 40 countries, applied for the award.
To ensure equity and impartiality, we invited distinguished and experienced leaders from the fields of science, education, social services and international education to form the AISL Harrow Scholarships Review Panel.
The panel reviewed the applications on the basis of academic performance, English fluency, and extra-curricular talents, alongside student’s commitment to leadership and service activities. From hundreds of applicants, twelve were selected for interview and from these, five candidates were chosen for the award.
Mr. Alastair Land, member of the Review Panel and Head Master of Harrow School in the UK, said, “I am delighted to offer my congratulations to the five superb candidates who have been awarded the inaugural AISL scholarships to Harrow International Schools. All of them have shown tremendous commitment, determination, and resilience during the demanding selection process; a great track record lies behind them and all the excitement and opportunity are in front. We are glad that they are part of and indeed leaders within the Harrow Family of Schools – one that offers not only an outstanding education that shares its values with Harrow School, but one that also offers unrivalled scope to learn and develop into impressive people of character who will go on to make a positive contribution to their world.”
