What is the 9 GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship?

It’s a talent-based award where meritorious learners can win tuition waiver scholarships that cover anywhere between 10 to 20 per cent off their yearly tuition fees. How much your child gets depends on the category they qualified for. For instance, category A recipients get up to 20 percent off on their tuition fees; category B receive 15 percent off while category C receive 10 percent off. To be eligible, your child must receive recognition in any of the 9 GEMS skill areas.
