Applying for a Spark Generation Scholarship

We already talked about the significance of scholarships in high school and all the benefits they come with for the students and their families. But what is the secret to submitting a successful application? How do you actually get the scholarships that you apply for? Keep reading for a helpful guide on how to apply for (and maybe win) a Spark Generation Scholarship!

Spark Generation Scholarships

If you started reading this article, that means that you already know what we’re talking about.


Spark Generation is known for offering scholarships to ambitious students who want to go through high school and follow their dream learning journey with the support of experienced tutors and Learning Journey Advisors. 


Who can apply?

The Spark Generation Scholarships are open to all international students who have finished at least Year 9 and need to embark on a learning journey that is personalised around their goals and dreams.


Steps for a Successful Scholarship Application

Preparation before Action  

Whenever a wonderful opportunity like a scholarship appears in front of us, we are tempted to jump right at it and fill it in as quickly as possible. We want to make sure we’re among the first ones on the list. Right? 


However, if we want our application to be successful, the first thing we should do is sit down and think it through.


What qualifies me for this scholarship? How would this help me in achieving my goals? Where could I do my research to maximise my chances of success? Well, you actually did the first step if you are reading this.


But it’s also important not to fall into the trap of procrastination. Yes, we should take time to think it over, but we should also be mindful of the deadlines. 


Sending in applications late is already a red flag for the evaluators.


Besides, it’s not even sure that the application will be accepted if it does not meet the deadline. So take your time, but also manage it wisely and submit the applications on time. 



When it comes to the requirements section, each scholarship application can be different. However, you can expect each application to ask about your ambition and motivation.


After all, they want to know what makes you the best candidate for receiving the scholarship. 


For the Spark Generation Scholarships, the requirements usually are:


1. Filling in a form

With your personal information. The forms will be available on our website & our socials whenever we are running active Scholarship campaigns


2. Creating and uploading a video 

Where you talk about your Spark (=passion, ambition, motivation) and the reason for which you would like to receive this scholarship.


3. Uploading a language certificate

Minimum B2 level – that can be either a transcript from an international school or a language test certificate.


Students can also take a language test with us to find out their level of English. For help with this, contact us at


How to Create a Great Video Application 

If your scholarship requirements include a video, there are a couple of things that you should take into consideration. 



You have to plan your “speech” and repeat it a couple of times to put some life into it. If you are a nervous person, you can also read the “speech” you prepared for the video.


Keep in mind that you should try and be present and “engage” with the audience who is going to review your application. 



You don’t need a fancy camera to create a video. You can use your phone or your laptop webcam. Or, anything that has a feature to record sound and images and looks decent will do. 


Light and Background

Even though it might seem like it does not matter, a good setting makes a video more pleasant without even realizing it. Find a spot with good lighting and a pleasant background – nothing too crowded or messy. 


Take it Seriously

Don’t submit a random link to complete the form requirements. If the scholarship requires a video as part of the application, make sure you create and submit it. Otherwise, your application might not get taken into consideration, even if the rest of the info is brilliant. 


Important Things to Keep in Mind

The scholarship covers between 30% and 100% of tuition for all four years of high school, and the Scholarship Committee will determine the value for each student.


Scholarships are awarded for the entire High School (four years) with regular yearly re-evaluations to make sure both parties comply with the agreed terms.


The scholarship winners will get enrolled in a high school level that matches their previous academic progress and they will also gain access to Spark Generation’s wellbeing and future readiness programs.


Scholars are expected to act as role models and ambassadors for Spark Generation. This means that they might be tasked with interacting with visitors and prospective families, special guests, mentors, supporters of the programme, new students, help with advertisement purposes, etc.
