WISS SCHOLARSHIPS | THE HALLMARK OF EXCELLENCE 


The WISS Scholarship Programme is a merit-based scholarship for highly motivated and talented students from around the world. These scholars endeavor to pursue an international holistic education that offers an authentic, multilingual, and creative element. The Scholarship Program's goal is to recognize and reward those students who demonstrate excellence in academics and the areas of contributing to the school and community through creativity, critical thinking, leadership skills, and team spirit.   

 

As our most competitive and distinguished scholarship, the De-Zhi-Ti Overall Achievement Scholarship represents the highest level of scholarship, leadership, and service. The Scholarship can also lead to future opportunities for enrichment and social and extracurricular engagement for the deserving students. A WISS scholar epitomizes the pursuit of excellence to the highest degree, honoring both the mission and vision of the school. Scholars will play a significant role in the campus life of WISS. They must show a high degree of ability in their academic and extracurricular activities, demonstrating leadership and mentorship in encouraging non-scholarship-holding students.  


We look forward to recognizing these outstanding young scholars and welcoming them to our campus and the WISS family.

De (德) – An education is not just the content covered in school. At WISS, students are expected to foster healthy relationships with others based on being caring, collaborative, respectful, responsible, and supportive individuals whose actions contribute to giving back to the community.

Zhi (智) – When a school develops the mind of its students, it gives them knowledge and skills, and nurtures them to become critical thinkers, increasing their ability to solve problems. Therefore, WISS believes that success is not just a number on a test but also how students approach challenges.

Ti (体)– Students need not only compassion for others and the intelligence to solve problems, but they need to look inward and care for themselves with a healthy mind, body, and lifestyle. This methodology aligns with WISS's balanced approach to education that nurtures the whole child.
