The Overseas School of Colombo (OSC) being the only school in Sri Lanka to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program from Pre-school to Grade 12 aims to provide an educational setting that is focused on developing each student to achieve their full potential. OSC ensures excellence through highly qualified teachers committed to the needs of all students on a campus, which balances nature with state of the art technology, facilities and resources.
The school’s learning environment embeds several values including flexibility and adaptability that helps to promote healthy relationships, ethical responsibility, and personal challenge to foster in a diverse environment.
Among the multitude of benefits that The Overseas School of Colombo offers within its multinational English medium international school setting is the ‘OSC Scholarship Program’ that seeks highly capable students who are ready to contribute to the community, excel academically, and grow personally, to join its student population.
The scholarship program is available to Sri Lankan students who exhibit exceptional academic ability, critical thinking, and strong leadership skills.
It is also a remarkable opportunity for those who can contribute academically, since it allows them to enjoy the multiple benefits available to all the other students at OSC.
The scholarship recipient joining the OSC’s student community will have the opportunity to become active learners, while being encouraged to understand how they learn, how they connect learning, and how they apply learning.
The scholarship program seeks to empower exceptional Sri Lankan nationals, aged 14-18 who exhibit extraordinary academic ability and social responsibility. It is a gateway to a comprehensive academic program that enhances student’s knowledge, critical thinking, and leadership skills for the future.
The students selected for the program are entitled to follow the globally recognized International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, which has the widest reach for entry to all national university systems world-wide, and is much sought after by the world’s best universities. It also allows the student to engage in a range of extracurricular activities that encourage student- initiated projects and compete in inter- school sporting events in the South Asian and Middle Eastern region. Scholarship offers will be made on the basis of results at an entrance examination, formal interview as well as an analysis of past academic results. The potential for special contributions back to the OSC community and English Language proficiency are also essential. In addition to that, the success in the IB Program will be assessed including commitment to studying a broad range of subjects and enthusiastic involvement in the Creativity – Activity – Service program.
