The Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) has begun accepting applications for its 2021 scholarship program. Students who have Bahraini citizenship, are enrolled in the 11th grade or equivalent and set to graduate from school in 2021, and have a Grade Point average of 97% or above for Grade 10 (two semesters) and Grade 11 (first semester), are welcome to apply until the 19th of March.
CPISP Director of Finance & Administration Affairs, Mrs. Shatha Ahmed Ali, affirmed that qualifying applicants must submit an application form available on the CPISP website www.cpisp.bh, and attach the following documents: official school transcripts in English for Grade 10 and first semester of Grade 11, copies of passport and CPR/smart card, and a recent passport size picture.
Mrs. Ali further explained that after receiving the applications, students who meet the application criteria will take a set of qualifying tests to assess their English proficiency and critical reasoning abilities. A minimum of 60 candidates will then be selected based on their GPAs and results of their qualifying tests, and will be enrolled in training courses and workshops organized by the Program over the summer and beginning of the next academic year. The qualifying candidates will include 40 students from public schools, and 20 students from private schools.
The final ten scholarship recipients will be announced in April 2021, based on their Grade Point Average, and scores of their IELTS and SATs in math, writing, and critical reading, as well as their scores in select courses completed during their candidacy training. The recipients will include 5 boys and 5 girls from both private and public schools.
