Bahamian Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship Applications Open

The Bahamian Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship is a new, exciting scholarship opportunity available to Bahamian students applying to Lyford Cay International School for the 2023-24 School Year.

10 students will be selected from the pool of competition applicants to receive scholarships to attend LCIS ranging from 25% of tuition to 100%.

Students who enter the competition will need to highlight not only their achievements and aspirations but also display the character attributes of the IB Learner Profile. Families will also need to present financial information.

There will be a leadership framework that students who receive these scholarships will gain access to, leveraging their emerging talents and strengthening them to ensure their success. Once these students have completed their education, the school expects them to make a lasting impact on the country.

Candidates must be Bahamian citizens and new applicants to LCIS (from any school). Only completed applications will be considered. The deadline for applications is 10 March 2023 and the selected candidates will be announced on 5 April 2023.

Both of my children were able to gain admission to Ivy league universities because of the high-quality education they received at LCIS. The rigour of the IB and the well-rounded curriculum at LCIS gave them the preparation needed to excel in university and in life. I am happy that while at LCIS, they were not only able to pursue their passions but also to develop them at a high level with the support of their teachers.
