There is a Malay proverb, “Serumpun bak serai, sesusun bak sireh,” that shares a common sentiment with an old Irish expression, “There is no strength without unity.
” Both adages emphasise the importance of unity and collaboration as essential components for success.
This principle aligns with The International School of Kuala Lumpur’s (ISKL) core belief in the power of collective efficacy to have an ethical impact on the world.
In line with this, ISKL is committed to making opportunities accessible to talented Malaysian Form 3 leavers by offering the ISKL Pathways Scholarship which empowers them to make a difference in the world. Consistent with ISKL’s vision to “Know yourself, care for all, and create a better world,” these scholarships aim to nurture well-rounded individuals who can contribute positively to society through collaboration and unity.
The ISKL Pathways Scholarship: An Overview
In an ever-changing world, students need to become ‘Changemakers’ who actively seek positive change and gather the insight and means to make said changes happen. The ISKL Pathways Scholarship for Malaysian Form 3 leavers aims to nurture changemakers by providing them with the tools to help unlock their potential. The scholarship is merit and need-based and is equivalent to a four-year study in the High School Program, from Grade 9 to Grade 12 (14 years old to 17 years old).
The scholarship will be awarded to deserving and inspirational students who are passionate about achieving the competencies to make a positive impact. They will be nurtured and guided in further developing their passions and understanding the world to transform themselves, others and the environment.
The ISKL Curriculum
ISKL offers a robust international curriculum that combines leading North American educational frameworks with global best practices. The school’s unique offering of a wide range of high-quality, transdisciplinary pathways enables every learner to choose the curriculum best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations.
In addition to the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Advanced Placement Program, ISKL offers two innovative study pathways, those being PRAXIS (Grade 9) and the Pursuits Program (Grade 11 and 12) which focus on enhancing student agency and self-directed learning. The curriculum recognises that students are on a lifelong learning journey and is driven by ISKL’s purpose to prepare them for life.

Current ISKL Pathways scholar Pretyba K says, “Getting into ISKL has been priceless. The abundance of opportunities available at one of the best schools in Malaysia, if not the best, is a significant factor in why I decided to join. I knew that my experience at ISKL would open up countless doors for me and mould me into a better person, teaching me essential values and skills I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”
