Pamoja Scholarship Programme
Our Scholarship Programme provides outstanding prospective IB Diploma Programme students with the opportunity to take their subject of interest as a Pamoja Taught course. Pamoja waives tuition fees for the two-year duration of the scholar’s course.
Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:
- Academic merit
- Readiness for online study
- Motivation and interest in the chosen subject
Only students accepted into an authorised IB World School to start studying for the first year of the Diploma Programme in the forthcoming academic year will be considered for the award.
The application process will consist of two steps:
- The school’s IB Diploma Coordinator should submit the completed student application form to email@example.com by the application deadline
- Selected applicants will be invited for a 15 minute skype or phone interview with members of the Pamoja Scholarship Award Committee, consisting of representatives of Pamoja’s marketing, sales, academic and school services teams
