INC 5000

For third consecutive year, International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc. (ISTS) ranked on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.

The Inc. 5000 list represents the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment— independent small businesses.

To qualify, companies must be privately-held and not a subsidiary or division of another company. They are ranked based on the percentage of revenue growth from 2013 to 2016. In addition, companies must have earned more than $2 million in revenue in 2016.

In just 32 years, ISTS has grown from a one-employee enterprise occupying a single room of rented office space to a 70-employee corporation serving more than 275 clients worldwide. ISTS is also the first and only 100% women-owned business in the full-service scholarship administration industry.

Started in 1982, the Inc. 500 list has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
