The International School Moshi (ISM) Scholarship Programme develops the future leaders of Tanzania by giving talented local students full scholarships to complete their schooling. Both campuses offer scholarships for students in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (Forms 5 & 6). We ensure these students are successful through hosting them either as boarding students or as day students, enabling them to participate fully in co-curricular activities, and providing them with pastoral care and university application support.



  • extend the opportunity for excellent education to outstanding disadvantaged Tanzanian students.
  • develop and prepare ambitious Tanzanian students for future leadership positions within the nation and East Africa.
Only 5% of Tanzanian teenagers regularly attend secondary school and the need for educated, capable and committed professionals to manage the country’s development is becoming overwhelming. ISM is working to meet this need by carefully selecting bright, enthusiastic and compassionate students, and by giving them the opportunity to develop their academic potential, global perspective and sense of personal direction. After completing their studies, they will then be suitably equipped for the global leadership role that their country needs them to play, so that Tanzania can develop for the improvement of all of its citizens.


The ISM Scholarship Student Programme began in August 2002. Since then, 26 scholarship students have graduated from ISM with a world-renowned International Baccalaureate Diploma since 2004 and have studied at universities including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Duke, Amherst and British Columbia, on full scholarships. We currently have ten scholarship students in school; they too are working hard to fulfill their dream of high academic achievement. Five new scholarship students are expected to join the school in August 2017.
