  • Participation in leadership, sport and extracurricular activities at school and in their communities;
  • Family support to attend boarding school; and
  • Performance in interviews with Yalari and school staff.
APPLICATION PROCESS

Once applications are received, a selection panel will review the applications and a short-list of candidates is identified.  Short-listed candidates are interviewed in their own home with their family.  Based on the outcome of this interview, a recommendation will be made for the candidate and a guardian to attend an interview at the selected Yalari partner school.  Following the school interview and feedback from the school, Yalari will make a decision about whether a scholarship will be awarded.

The selection of our students is carefully planned to ensure a good fit between students and schools.
