The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) offers the Pathways Scholarship for Malaysian students who have or will complete their Form 3 school assessment.

ISKL Pathways scholarship will be granted to deserving and inspirational students who believe, as we do, that the purpose of a school is to prepare students for life itself. We believe in the importance of helping students to shape their own paths, supporting them in discovering their passions, developing their competencies, and having an ethical impact on the world.

In its commitment to achieving ISKL’s vision and mission, ISKL will offer the ISKL Pathways Scholarship for Malaysian students who have completed their Form 3 school assessment in 2024. The scholarship is merit and need-based and is equivalent to a four-year study of the High School Program, so from Grade 9 to Grade 12.

Scholarship recipients would have access to high-quality, internationally recognized education that enables every learner to choose the curriculum best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations.

The ISKL Pathways scholarship includes full tuition and external exam fees* and offers an international education that opens doors.
