WISS Scholarship Programs

The Western International School of Shanghai is one of the few international schools in Shanghai to offer scholarships to students. These scholarships are reserved for students who:

  • Have a record of outstanding academic achievement
  • Made positive contributions to the WISS community through service, action, and participation in school life
  • Exemplify the IB learner profile that we so strongly believe in
  • Demonstrate leadership in athletics, academics, music, arts, or another area
  • Exhibit a financial need

WISS is proud to offer a variety of scholarships that help diversify our student body. These scholarships are offered in an effort to provide students with exceptional talent an opportunity to receive a top international education in Shanghai.

In addition to the in-house scholarships listed below, there are two more incredible opportunities for scholarships through the Western International School of Shanghai’s IB Career-related Programme and partnerships with the Savannah College of Art & Design and FirstPoint USA.

SCAD at WISS Rising Stars Scholarship

WISS constantly works to offer every possible opportunity to develop the capacity, add knowledge and motivate our students as they complete the IBDP or IBCP. In addition to the WISS scholarships, Grade 11 students at WISS are eligible for a scholarship to attend the SCAD Rising Stars Program.
