60 students to benefit from CPISP
Manama, February 7, 2013
Sixty students will be selected for the Crown Prince's International Scholarship Programme (CPISP) 2014, the submissions for which will open on February 10.
Qualifying students must have Bahraini citizenship, be enrolled in grade 11 or equivalent, set to graduate in 2014 and have a grade point average (GPA) of 97 per cent for grade 10 and first semester of grade 11, our sister newspaper, the Gulf Daily News reported.
After receiving the applications, the qualifying students will take a set of tests to assess their English proficiency and critical reasoning abilities.
Students will be selected based on their GPAs and the test results, 40 of which will be from government schools and 20 from private ones.
"These candidates will then be given the opportunity to benefit from various educational workshops and training courses organised by the programme over the summer and throughout the academic year," said CPISP public relations and media head Esmat Ahmed.
The 10 scholarship recipients will be announced in March next year.
Registration will continue until February 28 and applicants must fill out the form available on the CPISP website, and submit it to the Court of the Crown Prince in Riffa. – TradeArabia News Service
