The Walworth Barbour American International School (WBAIS) promotes cultural diversity recognizing

the variety of human cultures and their different value systems in societies around the world. As part of

our program to promote this diversity, WBAIS maintains a scholarship program for local, non-diplomatic

students who are deserving in both achievement and character who desire an American form of education

in order to pursue a university education in the United States.

The objectives of this program are:

To improve academic excellence in the AIS student population from a local, non-diplomatic

scholar who has the potential for achieving higher education in the United States or in an English-

speaking environment.

♦ To provide a highly intelligent, mature, local, non-diplomatic student with the academic challenge

of an American education to foster his or her ability to seek an American-oriented higher

education.

♦ To provide for a vehicle to increase the diversity of the AIS student population to include local,

non-diplomatic students who otherwise would not have the financial means to attend AIS.

 

The requirements are that the student:

 

Must be a local, non-diplomatic student, male or female, entering grade 8-12 who is not funded by

a sponsoring organization.

Must be economically underprivileged and an ethnic minority group within Israel who would

benefit from a multi-cultural American education.

Must have demonstrated high academic standards in their present school.

Must have demonstrated active participation in community and/or school activities such as

performing arts, sports, scouts, community service, organizations promoting cross-cultural

understanding, etc.

Must provide a 1-page essay explaining why the student wishes to attend AIS, what benefits he/she

anticipates gaining, and what he/she believes will be his/her contribution to the school.

Must have three letters of recommendation; one from each of the following: a school

administrator, teacher, and general character reference. The letters can be in local languages and

will be translated to English by AIS

Not currently be enrolled at AIS.

Should show the potential for developing English that meets the requirements for entry into high

school.

Must demonstrate keen interest to pursue a post-secondary English speaking education.

Final applicants may be invited to participate in an interview and a psycho-educational evaluation

financed by the school.

 

The conditions of this scholarship program are:

 

The scholarship will cover up to 100% of tuition, registration and building fees. In addition, this

scholarship will cover transportation fees, AIS-based activities fees, Advanced Placement fees, and

school sponsored trips. The scholarship will continue until the student graduates. Should the

student fail to maintain the requirements of the scholarship, the scholarship will be terminated.

Should the financial capabilities of the family dramatically improve, the parents and the school will

discuss the possibility of giving up the scholarship.

 

The student must maintain a first-year GPA of 85. In subsequent years, the student must maintain a

GPA of 88.

♦ The student, in consultation with his/her parents and the scholarship committee, will be required to

actively contribute to the WBAIS school community.
