To be eligible for this award, a student must provide proof of their sibling’s enrollment at The IIE’s Varsity College.

4. Leadership Awards

Leadership Awards are one-year awards given to prospective students who assumed a leadership role at the school they matriculated from.

Application Process

The IIE’s Varsity College Scholarship Programme application process is straightforward and accessible to all prospective students. To apply for a bursary, scholarship, or award, a student must book an appointment with a Student Advisor at an IIE Varsity College campus close to them. The Student Advisor will provide information on the application process and eligibility criteria for each award.

Students must complete the application form in full, providing all the required academic and financial information. Applicants must attach an official copy of their last set of school results (Grade 11 or equivalent or Grade 12 results, if Grade 12 has been completed) and a tax certificate for both parents or guardians, where applicable. If a parent or guardian is not registered for tax, a certified declaration stating that the parent or guardian is the sole earner in

the household must be submitted. The completed application form, supporting documents, and proof of registration at IIE’s Varsity College must be submitted to the Student Advisor by the stipulated deadline.
