Una, Grade 9, first year in ISB
Life works in mysterious ways, because just a few months ago I wouldn’t have been able to imagine myself having the wonderful opportunities that ISB has enabled me to have and experience in the time that I have been here, and especially in the future. ISB makes everyone and anyone feel welcome, due to their approach to learning, socializing and communication, as well as the teachers who provide support and are always there to help.
What I like about this program is that it allows you to explore subjects with a touch of what you are interested in and passionate about, and to express and incorporate your own opinions and ideas to make learning more fun and adapted to personal ethics. ISB let me step out of my comfort zone and improve when expressing myself in English, and it encouraged me to participate and explore new activities and topics that I never would have thought to like otherwise, such as business and speech and debate. It is a path that leads to a bright future and lovely memories, therefore I am very thankful for having this door opened for me!

The ISB scholarship offers important financial assistance to students who most need it and have the greatest chance of future success. In order to assist students in developing their identities, it provides a variety of extracurricular activities and sports teams. Whilst also providing students with ongoing support and criticism. Additionally, it helps students improve their language skills. Likewise, project- and presentation-making skills. There is diversity, support, and friendliness everywhere at ISB, making it by far the friendliest environment I have ever experienced.

My name is Elena Petrovski and I am very happy to be a scholarship student at ISB. I love mathematics, science, volleyball, poetry, and to associate with people and help them. I hope to develop and get better at my hobbies, and start having new interests as well. I like many things, and ISB school offers the opportunity to see and try all those different things, and meet people from all over the world. That is why I am so happy to be a part of this amazing school and thankful for a scholarship.
Milica, Grade 11, third year in ISB
Just a year ago I couldn't imagine myself being where I am now, but getting the ISB scholarship has changed my life completely. I have had the opportunity to meet many interesting people coming from different parts of the world and I have access to quality education even in difficult times of online learning. I am so thankful to the amazing teachers who have given me their support since day one and made me feel welcome to be in ISB. Over the course of last year, I have improved both my English and French and got to explore many of my interests such as making a sculpture out of plaster inspired by Greek art in my art classes, creating mechanical toys in my design course and doing lab experiments in science classes. I would never have had these experiences and practice in Serbian schools and I am incredibly thankful to be part of the ISB community.
Ivan, Grade 11, third year in ISB
The ISB scholarship grants many experiences that students will not find anywhere else in Serbia. The school offers a unique opportunity to discover one’s true passions and interests in life by engaging in many school co-curricular activities such as Speech and Debate, Knowledge Ball and various sports tournaments that take place abroad.
For me, ISB is a stimulating learning environment with world class teachers, the most modern approach to learning and cutting-edge technology that pushes students to work hard, but also allows them to discover different cultures and create long lasting friendships.
I am grateful for being granted this opportunity which will help pave the path for what I want to accomplish in the future.
Ljubica, Grade 12, fourth year in ISB
Applying for ISB scholarship is one of the best decisions you could possibly make! You will learn a lot about yourself, get a chance to meet many interesting people and explore your interests that go far beyond anything you could get at any other school in Serbia. I managed to improve my English skills and join a Speech and Debate competition in which I won third place. I am currently preparing for my first “Model UN” experience in Belgrade, and thanks to the massive support I've received both from the teachers and my classmates, there was not a single moment when I felt uncomfortable to be here. Come to ISB, and make your dream come true!
Mateja, Graduated 2022
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, Graduated 2021
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).
