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.
