Scholarships Tips

Children spend most of their time in their schools. Therefore, the school has a significant impact on a child's mental, social, emotional, and physical growth. In school, children discover their inborn talents and abilities. Thus, it is only fair that the school helps the students nurture these talents. Talent in sports is recognised and lauded at the best international schools in Bangalore.

The Global Indian International School in Bangalore prioritizes its students' sports excellence. The school is equipped with playgrounds and the necessary equipment to allow students to participate in various sports activities such as tennis, chess, athletics, martial arts, hockey, and rugby, to mention a few. The school awards the Global Sports Scholarship to excellent sports students. The Global Sports Scholarship (GSS) has a three-year scholarship tenure eligible for a learner in grades 1-12, offered by the Global School Foundation (GSF) to support young sports talent.

The GIIS Sports Scholarship aims at:

1. Offering Motivation to Learners

We understand that not all students will have the talent to excel but there are others who excel. Some students, especially those from less financially stable backgrounds, may need motivation to continue with sports. Thus, students who show proficiency in sports activities are awarded the Global Sports Scholarship. This scholarship is a financial aid that seeks to motivate students to nurture their skills.

2. Nurturing GIIS Students Sports Talents

GIIS Bangalore recognizes that children are gifted differently. Some students excel in academics, while others excel in sports or art. The Global Sports Scholarship supports young sports talent by offering financial aid to study in the school, equipped with the necessary facilities that foster practice in different sports. The school also hires competent and experienced coaches who guide and train the learners into perfecting their skills, hence nurturing learner's sports talents  

What's more, the scholarship brings together students gifted in various sports activities, creating competitiveness. Through competitiveness, a learner is challenged to do better, and thus they become experts in the sports in which they excel.

3. Boosting Learners Confidence and Recognition

Winning the scholarship is not a walk in the park. A student has to stand out among other talented applicants. Therefore, when one finally wins the scholarship, there is a boost in confidence. They are encouraged to pursue anything they set their mind on. Winning the scholarship also helps to reduce self-doubt among the learners, thus helping them to enhance their self-esteem. 

The Global Sports Scholarship also helps students gain recognition among their peers and fellow students who accord a scholarship holder with respect and admiration. The scholarship is a source of inspiration and motivation to fellow learners.

4. Increasing Students' Career Opportunities

This scholarship enables a student to study in one of India's best schools, the Global Indian International School in Bangalore. The school is equipped with competent and experienced teachers and facilities that allow students to access quality education that opens more career doors for the learner. 

Additionally, the scholarship helps students talented in sports to perfect their sports skills, and the students can go ahead in the future and turn their talents into lifelong careers. For instance, one could aspire to become a professional athlete or players like Usain Bolt and PV Sindhu.

Sports scholarships help students in expanding their career choices beyond academics. The scholarships will also enhance a student's resume and increase their chances of getting selected at the world's top universities.
