The Global Indian International School incorporates the holistic teaching methodology to help students become well-rounded citizens. The school, therefore, balances academics and extracurricular activities for the holistic development of its learners. 

Holistic development is essential because it helps students be creative, think critically, make fast and informed decisions when faced with challenges, and keep physically fit and healthy, among other benefits.

The international school further awards the 9GEMS Scholarships. This scholarship has a one-year tenure awarded to students in Grades 6-12 to foster the students' mental, social, emotional, and physical growth.

For a student to win the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship, they should do the following while applying:


1. Ensure That They are Eligible

It would help if you researched the requirements of the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship. Consider the eligibility criteria before submitting your application letter. For instance, this scholarship requires all applicants to be Indian citizens. 

The applicants must have participated in an event for 9GEMS skills. You should ensure that you meet these requirements to qualify for the scholarship. Applying for the scholarship when you are not eligible is a waste of your time and leads to your application dismissal.


2. Attach the Relevant Documents

What support documents does the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship require you to attach? You should ensure that you have all the documents ready and attach them with your application form. This scholarship requires the following documents:

● Academic records of the previous years

● Proof or supporting documents of participation in a 9GEMS skills event

● You should ensure that you attach these documents, as your application will not be processed without the papers.



3. Submit an Error-Free Application

Your application is your first shot at making an impression. Therefore, you should make it count. The application should highlight your strengths and reflect your competencies. Ensure that you are convincing enough as to why you deserve the scholarship in your application.

What's more, you should ensure that your application is free from grammatical errors and that you use a formal tone. You should use a globally recognized language and be careful in your choice of words. Proofread to ensure submission of a polished application.


4. Be Honest

What happens when you badly want something? You strive and do anything to get it, right? Well, you should not let your desire to win the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship lead you into providing misleading information. You should ensure that you can vouch for every detail you include in your application. The documents you attach should be accurate and authentic.

Submitting misleading information reduces your chances of winning the school scholarship.


5. Observe Deadlines

You should ensure that you submit your application before the stated deadlines. Imagine being eligible for the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship, attaching all the relevant documents, having a polished and accurate application, and then ruining your chances by not meeting the deadline!

Now that you know what to do to win the scholarship, what do you stand to gain from the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship?


Grade 6-12 students can benefit from the 9GEMS scholarship in the following ways:

1. Affordable Tuition Fees

Some students in the Global Indian International School come from humble backgrounds. For this reason, they cannot afford the cost of sustaining themselves in the school. Therefore, they are left with the choice of staying home while the parents look for school fees or altogether drop out of school or transfer to another affordable school. 

However, the 9GEMS scholarship caters to a section of the school fees. For instance, it pays 9% of the students' tuition fees in the eligibility criteria' first category. This makes schooling in Global Indian International School in Ahmedabad affordable for all, including those from humble backgrounds.

2. Increased Career Opportunities

When you ask a high school child before they join school what they want to be in the future, you will get responses like, doctors, pilots, lawyers, you know, all the 'prestigious' careers. But in Grade 6, the same child may not want to be a doctor anymore, as they are exposed to more career opportunities. 

Moreover, to win the 9GEMS scholarship, a learner must show proficiency in a specific 9GEMS skill. This could lead to the student discovering their talent, for instance, in sports, and turn it into a career in the future.

What's more, mentioning a scholarship in your resume increases your chances of winning a lucrative job in the future compared to those who do not benefit from a scholarship.


3. Helps in Nurturing Talents

To win the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship, a student has to gain recognition in an event for the 9GEMS skills, whether at the national, regional, or international levels. Now for the students to participate in these events, they have to be involved in out-of-class activities that help them discover their prowess in these skills. 

Therefore, the school helps the students nurture these talents, for instance, in sports or drawing, to mention a few, by providing coaches. The coaches guide the students and help them perfect their skills.


4. Boosts Learners Confidence and Recognition

Winning the 9GEMS scholarship is not an easy task. One has to stand out among other applicants who are also skilled in their areas of expertise. Therefore, when one finally wins the scholarship, they become confident in their abilities and trust that they can achieve anything they set their minds on. The confidence also builds their self-esteem, and a learner does not keep on doubting their abilities.

What's more, students who win the 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship gain recognition among their peers. They are therefore accorded respect and admiration by their peers and students in junior classes.

Education is an expensive investment that many parents, especially from humble backgrounds, cannot cater to. The 9GEMS scholarship seeks to help such parents by paying for a section of the tuition fees, among other benefits. Therefore, students in Grades 6-12 should apply for this scholarship to enjoy these benefits.
