Transforming Lives with a Fully Funded Scholarship

The Nsouli Scholars Programme is an exciting global initiative that promises to transform lives by enabling 50 extraordinary students at any one time to attend any of Inspired’s prestigious schools on a full scholarship for the duration of their education. The ambition is that the scholarship will provide hundreds of children with an opportunity to receive a truly transformative education.

By opening this path to exceptional individuals, we hope to expand our community, and to empower children of all backgrounds with unrivalled opportunities in academics, sports, the arts and extracurricular activities. In this sense, the Nsouli Scholars Programme is an investment both in education and in shaping the leaders of tomorrow.

This generous endowment honours Nadim Nsouli, who founded Inspired in 2013 as a definitive statement of excellence in private international education. In recognition of Mr Nsouli’s Lebanese heritage and Inspired’s commitment to inclusivity, several scholarships will be awarded to individuals of Lebanese origin.


A Unique Education

Inspired schools offer a world-class educational experience that combines academics and engaging extra-curricular activities, producing confident, multi-skilled students who flourish in a competitive and increasingly interconnected world. Along with expert instruction by hand-picked teachers, our students access specialist sports programmes and professional tutelage from leaders in the performing and creative arts. As a result, they leave armed with a robust value system and a love of learning that extends well beyond the classroom.

Inspired is also committed to leveraging new and transformative learning technologies. Inspired AI empowers children to achieve academic excellence by delivering actionable insights that are unique to each student, including strengths and weaknesses. Our partnership with The Royal College of Music and Forte, a revolutionary online platform, enables children to receive personalised music tuition from professionals. Students with musical interests benefit from bespoke private lessons, advancing their practice as creatives and gaining valuable performance experience.

Top Academic Results

The advantages of our holistic approach to education are evidenced by the fact that Inspired students consistently excel in academic performance, surpassing national and global averages. In 2022, the Average Point Score was 35 for those undertaking the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, for which the world average was 31.98, while A* scores comprised 27% of our students' A Level grades, compared to 14.6% globally. As a consequence, many are able to attend leading universities, with one in three graduates going on to a Russell Group University or Ivy League College.


A Global Experience

The Inspired group includes top-rated day and boarding schools worldwide, meaning students enjoy access to a diverse international community. Be it through specialised Summer Camps or immersive Global Exchange Programmes, children have the chance to travel broadly and engage meaningfully with different cultures, meet and learn from our esteemed partners, build lifelong networks, and become more independent.

A Word From Our Founder

Founder of Inspired Education

“At Inspired, we are building communities, and we're committed to supporting them in extraordinary ways. Already, we support 2,200 students with scholarships and bursaries annually across our 111 schools. The Nsouli Scholars initiative goes beyond anything we've done before, reaching out to an even broader community of exceptional students who would simply not be able to access a premium Inspired education without full financial support. My ambition is that this programme will help provide hundreds of children around the world with a life-changing opportunity.”

Inspired Founder, Chairman & CEO - Nadim. M. Nsouli

Who is a Nsouli Scholar?

Inspired's modern approach to education is premised on three Pillars, which empower our students to succeed both in the classroom and beyond: Academic Excellence, Sports, and Performing & Creative Arts. 

Candidates for the Nsouli Scholars programme are expected to excel in at least two of the three Pillars, one of which must be Academic Excellence. Moreover, they will be 13+ years old and have qualities conducive to future success – integrity, leadership, ambition and a capacity for hard work, among others. Scholarships will only be awarded to applicants who, from a means perspective, are unable to access an Inspired education, and a proportion thereof will be given to deserving students of Lebanese origin.
