CIS offers limited financial aid to full tuition scholarships

Scholarship applications for the 2023-2034 school year are now CLOSED. Thank you to all those who sent in applications!

Cebu International School (CIS) is the only internationally accredited school in the Visayas/Mindanao region, as well as the only school in the Philippines to offer all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (DP). The mission of CIS is to create a collaborative, challenging, and nurturing school environment that involves community members, in order to provide a contemporary international education, which develops students’ unique potential to contribute to a better world.


The CIS Scholarship is intended for students with outstanding achievement and potential in any one of the following areas: academics, the arts, athletics, and service to their community. All Filipino scholarship candidates will have to meet standard CIS admissions requirements as well as pass the requirements of the CIS Scholarship Committee.

Preference for scholarships will be given to students who are not only academically qualified and demonstrate the ability to meet the rigors of the program, but also to those who demonstrate a commitment to contributing to the wider life of the school, such as through sports, arts, and service.
