The CATS Academy Scholarship of Excellence is aimed at exceptional students of any nationality who make a successful application and attend an Ivy League University, Stanford University or MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

CATS Academy Scholarship

Students joining or continuing their studies with us in September and January, to study our two-year high school diploma will be eligible for our scholarship. Winners of the scholarships will have their course and accommodation fees reimbursed upon proof of acceptance and attendance of the first semester of an Ivy League University (Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, and Yale University), MIT and Stanford University. Students will also be asked to engage in marketing activity, events and provide a testimonial for promotional use. Students can notify their Director of Enrolment and External Affairs of their eligibility.

In recent years we’ve had acceptances into multiple Ivy League Universities including Yale and Columbia as well acceptances to other top universities such as Stanford.
