Student Success Story: ISA Students Awarded The IB MYP Student Innovators’ Grant
MYP students Aditi Chitale, Mia Reyn and Daniela Gadot have been selected from a pool of worldwide applicants to receive the Dr. Siva Kumari MYP Student Innovators’ Grant.
According to the IB’s website, “The IB Student Innovators’ grant is an opportunity for MYP students to build vital skills to become the socially conscious leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs the world needs today. The grant seeks applications from Middle Years Program (MYP) years 4-5 students who are motivated to start or continue a social impact initiative. Through a competitive application review process, the IB will support up to 30 students every year to create, innovate or expand on an impactful project of their own design. Finalists will receive access to a newly expanded network of peers and grant funding to transform their powerful idea into reality.”
The three grade 10 students applied for a grant to fund a service project at ISA which aims to upcycle plastic used in the school, assisted in the grant application process by MYP Service as action coordinator Rachel Bodily.
