The Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) has launched a series of informative presentations across public and private schools to detail the opportunities of its 2021 scholarship program.
In this regard, the CPISP representatives highlighted that the application period for its 2021 scholarship program will run from 1 – 19 March 2020, inviting students to submit their applications on the program’s website (www.cpisp.bh).
Applicants who meet the program’s criteria will receive an invitation by email for a series of tests to assess their English proficiency and critical reasoning abilities. The assessments are organised by the CPISP in cooperation with the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF).
The CPISP criteria requires applicants to have Bahraini citizenship, to be enrolled in the 11th grade (or equivalent), and to graduate from secondary school in 2021. In addition, applicants are required to have an accumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 97% or above.
During the scholarship’s last stage known as “Candidacy Program”, a minimum of 60 applicants will be selected based on the results of their qualifying tests and GPA. Of these 60 applicants, a minimum of 40 will come from public schools and 20 will come from private schools. This stage will involve training as well as preparatory courses for the IELTS and SAT exams. After this process, the final 10 scholarship recipients will be selected.
Scholarships will be allocated to three males and three females from public schools, and two males and two females from private schools.
