Mateja, Grade 9, first year in ISB
The ISB Scholarship taught me to believe in myself and to go out of my comfort zone, because it had shown me that there are many opportunities to gain more knowledge. It also brought me a fantastic learning environment in which I can attest the best of my abilities and comprehension. During my educational process, I always wanted to explore chemistry, singing or participate in story-writing competitions and this school granted me the ability to present all of my virtues on tournaments all over Central and Eastern Europe. One of those events, the Speech and Debate competition, even ended with me winning in one of the categories! ISB’s amazing teachers are always open for a friendly and honest talk, and are very helpful. ISB is a school where the best way to learn is by constant exploration of topics using the latest technology in every aspect of the process. In conclusion, everyone should try to get this scholarship because it can bring you many great and unforgettable experiences.
Pavle, Grade 10, second year in ISB
The first time I saw the Upper School campus I was amazed, because it didn't look like any other school in Serbia. In the first few weeks, you will already see the difference between Serbian schools and ISB. One of the differences is in the way of teaching. Learning is made much easier with the support from teachers who make you feel welcome and help in any situation. You will also meet many interesting friends from different cultures and backgrounds. The school as well offers numerous after-school activities for everyone (sports, yoga, chess, rock band, and many more).

Uros, ISB Graduate, Class of 2018
Getting a scholarship in this school will allow you to think in different ways. The first thing that I noticed is that now I try to view everything from different perspectives. I am now open minded and the best thing about this school is that you learn through fun activities, multimedia, experiments and different approaches. I would recommend everyone to at least apply for this scholarship because you don’t lose anything for applying, but if you get this scholarship it is going to change your life and I am talking from experience.

Kristina, ISB Graduate, Class of 2016
The scholarship received from ISB, the education and experience I have acquired in this school have had a tremendously positive impact on my academic and professional life. Being a part of the ISB community and educational program has significantly improved my learning and thinking skills while also allowing me to extend both my professional and personal network. I have met a great variety of people with interesting backgrounds and experienced a wide range of cultures which made me more open minded and enabled me to easily adapt to my new life in the United States. If it was not for this scholarship, I would never have had the chance to pursue my academic interests overseas or to experience life in a very different culture and settings, thus I consider this scholarship to be an amazing gift which has played a crucial role in my life and my future.; Lynn University, Boca Raton, Miami - Presidential Scholarship
