The Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program announced the winners of its 2013 scholarships, who make up the Program’s 14th Group of Scholars, and who include the following students:
The Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) was established in 1999 by HRH the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander, and First Deputy Prime Minister, Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa. Since its inception, 136 of Bahrain’s brightest secondary school graduates have been selected on merit to receive this scholarship. The scholarship recipients are selected based on their GPAs, their IELTS and SAT test results, and their Critical Thinking and Leadership Development training scores, which are organized by the Program.
The CPISP awards 10 fully funded scholarships each year to outstanding secondary school students, providing them the opportunity to study at top international universities and colleges. The annual scholarship recipients include 5 young men and 5 young women from both private and governmental secondary schools. Scholarship recipients choose their own majors and universities that they gain acceptance from, and are not required to return to Bahrain to work after graduation. Graduates are encouraged to follow their desired career paths and pursue employment opportunities in Bahrain and the global arena, where they receive international work experience and exposure.
