ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION


QSI Tbilisi is looking for motivated students who are interested in learning to live in a multi-cultural setting while being academically challenged in English. Each year QSIT offers scholarships to students who are willing to rise to such a challenge.

An application and transcripts are required to begin the process. The next step will be academic and English screening. Once those have been reviewed, selected students and their parents will be asked to come in for an interview. Applicants will be notified by the end of March if they have been selected to receive a scholarship.

Applications are open from February through March 12th.

STUDENT RECOMMENDATIONS

 

Akaki A. is 12 years old, now fluent in English. He was granted a scholarship in April 2016. He has been a QSI student since preschool.

‘I knew a teacher at this school and I heard that it was such a friendly atmosphere, no fights. When my mom got the info that I got the scholarship, we had a big party with friends and family. Everyone is kind here, the kids, the teachers, everyone. I love soccer and basketball and my favorite subject is math. I finally managed to crack the code to fractions, now it’s easy. I want to graduate from QSI and go to Harvard in the US. Then I will probably start my own business’.


Milena M. is 17, she was granted a scholarship in October 2016 and she graduated in January 2018.

‘I chose QSI because it has a reputation of being the best school in Georgia. I went to quite a few schools before coming here. I was not expecting the scholarship, I was very happy to get it! I like that the kids are from so many different countries, I got so much inspiration. I had a great social life with my friends here. I enjoyed the many activities, the travels, the sports tournaments. I was very involved and loved being on the girls’ basketball team, the volleyball team and the Student Council.  I am a dancer and I developed my talent in the QSIT drama class. I want to perform and be a choreographer, probably in the US. It is such a big present for Georgians to be scholarship students here’.

Milena is currently living in The US with her family, looking at future universities.

History
The first scholarships were granted to Archil M. and George K. in 1995 when QSI International School of Tbilisi was founded. Since then, more than 100 scholarships totaling more than $2 million USD have been given. Currently 23 QSI Tbilisi students are receiving scholarship support.

Criteria for getting a scholarship
Scholarships are given to Georgian citizens as a part of the agreement with the Georgian Government and Ministry of Education. A scholarship may be awarded based on academic merit, family financial need, or because of other family support.

A scholarship at QSIT also enables parents and children alike to join our international community full of sports, charity and fun events.
