Protocol for Scholarship Program
The purpose of the BCIS Scholarship Program promotes excellence in the Secondary School by awarding scholarships to extraordinary students, irrespective of their families’ financial status.
BCIS Scholarships are investments in the personal, creative, and intellectual development of each student. The educational opportunities made possible by these scholarships encourage each student to give back to her/his community and participate in an ongoing network of support for BCIS’ alumni program.
BCIS Scholarships are normally awarded to students in their final four years of school (exceptional students aged at least 14 years by 31 August of the relevant school year). Students awarded scholarships are expected to complete their High School at BCIS.
BCIS awards two kinds of scholarship: academic scholarships and merit scholarships, which are intended to inspire and nurture exceptional talents for students who embody and exemplify the mission and vision of BCIS.
Academic scholarships are awarded annually as determined by academic achievement and academic potential. Merit scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of evidence of high achievement and outstanding academic or non-academic potential in a specific area of endeavor in the fields of sport, writing, the arts, mathematics, science, and technology.
Eligibility of Candidates
Applications are invited both from students currently enrolled at BCIS and from students enrolled in other schools. Students of all nationalities from grades 9 to 12 are eligible to apply (and exceptional students aged at least 14 years by August 31st of the relevant school year may be considered).
Overseas students from families planning to move to Beijing for the start of the relevant school year are also eligible to apply.
