Scholarships and Awards For Students

AISA has developed a number of student events, scholarships and awards in order to acknowledge and celebrate the awesome students that we ultimately endeavour to serve.

So, though AISA is all about developing the leaders and educators at AISA member schools, it is ultimately about enriching the learning and school experience of all students within the AISA community.

AISA Award for Excellence

AISA launched the award in 2008 to recognise and reward the achievements of outstanding students in AISA member schools. The award is bestowed upon any final year student who can demonstrate high academic results and whose character exemplifies the association’s values. Each school is invited to submit one application.
Nominations are due no later than 1 March of each year with the AISA Board confirming the successful candidates at the March Board meeting. Schools are then free to award recipients at the end of year school celebrations.

AISA values are demonstrated by those who:

  • Promote a school environment characterised by a sense of hospitality, friendliness and community among students and between students and staff.
  • Demonstrates by example the concept of service to the human family either within or outside the school environment.
  • Seeks to understand, appreciate and promote African cultures through service activities, participation in cultural events, or personal expression through African literature, languages, music, art or dance.
  • Embraces a world view that celebrates human unity and diversity. This trait could be demonstrated through service activities, student activities, cultural events, membership in clubs or organisations within or outside of school, academic projects, or any form of artistic expression.

Nomination guidelines

Each AISA full member school is invited to nominate one student each year to be considered for this award. The student must be in his/her final year of high school.

Nomination for 2022-23 student awards for excellence will be opened in Dec 2022.

  • Award recipients will be confirmed by the AISA Board
  • A plaque and a letter will be sent to the school head to be presented to the award recipient at the school year-end ceremony.

Margaret Sanders International Scholarships

Each year, in partnership with the Margaret Sanders Foundation, AISA is pleased to offer the opportunity for schools from within the AISA network to nominate outstanding students for Margaret Sanders International Scholarship and Margaret Sanders AISA Scholarship for Girls.

Born in 1910, Margaret Sanders was a pioneer for her time, holding roles as varied as advertising designer, writer, air traffic controller, photographer and international yearbook representative. Her career with Walsworth Publishing Company began in 1961 and during the subsequent four decades, she travelled the world assisting schools with the publication of their yearbooks. This exciting career afforded her the opportunity to develop a close identification with overseas “American/ International” schools and their diverse and interesting populations.

Margaret passed away in June 2009, leaving a legacy of giving through her scholarship fund in perpetuity.

Past scholarship winners have come from international schools in Abu Dhabi, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sultanate of Oman, United Kingdom, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, and Zimbabwe.

Each year AISA offers full member school two separate scholarship opportunities:

  • Margaret Sanders International Scholarship

    The annual Margaret Sanders International Scholarship is open to graduating high school students from AISA full member schools.

  • Margaret Sanders AISA Scholarship For Girls

    Thanks to a generous endowment from Margaret Sanders' family and friends, AISA is proud to offer the Margaret Sanders AISA Scholarship for Girls.

Outstanding Service Project

This award is for a service learning project that may be run by an individual student or group of students whose project has a direct benefit to a community, as opposed to specific people or an individual.
