Akaki A. is 11 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 16, she was granted a scholarship in Oct 2016, she graduates next year.
‘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 get so much inspiration. I have a great social life with my friends here. I enjoy the many activities, the travels, the sports tournaments. I am very involved and love being on the girls’ basketball team and the volleyball team. I am a dancer and here I can develop my talent in the drama class. I want to perform and be a choreoghrapher, probably in the US. It is such a big present for Georgians to be scholarship students here’. Milena is currently looking at future universities.
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.
