There is a Malay proverb, "Serumpun bak serai, sesusun bak sireh," that shares a common sentiment with the old Irish expression, "There is no strength without unity." Both adages emphasize the importance of unity and collaboration as essential components for success. This principle aligns with The International School of Kuala Lumpur's (ISKL) core belief in the power of collective efficacy to nurture the global citizens of tomorrow. 

In line with this, ISKL is committed to making opportunities accessible to talented Malaysian Form 3 leavers by offering the ISKL Pathways Scholarship, which empowers them to make a difference in the world. Consistent with ISKL's vision to "Know yourself, care for all, and create a better world," the scholarship aims to nurture well-rounded individuals who can contribute positively to society through collaboration and unity.

The ISKL Pathways Scholarship: An Overview

As one of Malaysia's leading international schools, ISKL understands the importance of a holistic approach to education, as the school focuses on nurturing the individual instead of a one-size-fits-all approach. The ISKL Pathways Scholarship for Malaysian students Form 3 leavers aims to nurture international-mindedness in students by providing them with the tools to help unlock their potential. The scholarship is merit and need-based and is equivalent to a four-year study in the High School Program, from Grade 9 to Grade 12 (14 - 17 years old).

Recipients of the Pathways Scholarship benefit from the flexibility of ISKL's innovative high school study pathways, which include the option to undertake the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Grades 11 and 12. When asked what encouraged her to be a Pathways scholar, Dharnita C., a current scholar, shares, "The opportunity to join ISKL was driven by my desire for a high-quality education that focuses on academic achievement, personal growth, and global awareness."

In addition to academics, the scholarship provides scholars with opportunities to showcase their passion for creating a positive impact on local communities, understanding global issues, and impacting a cause they believe is fundamental to a progressive community through the various clubs and society offered in high school. Braydon W., a scholar with a passion for music, had the opportunity to become a concertmaster in the highly anticipated High School production of Shrek the Musical. Reflecting on his experience, he says, "I feel proud of everyone who participated, especially those in the Pit Orchestra, as we did our best to produce the most exquisite sound for the audience."
