The SIBT Academic Merit Scholarship is awarded each semester to the most outstanding results from two students across Diploma or Advanced Diploma program at SIBT.
The scholarships are tuition fee waivers for one academic semester to the value of maximum four academic units.
Any additional costs, including travel or material such as books or equipment required as part of program will be recipient's responsibility.
