The Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) has started its ‘Candidacy Program’, which is the final step in the 2023 scholarship selection process.
The CPISP held an orientation at the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) headquarters to brief the scholarship candidates, from both public and private schools, on the training they will receive during the program.
CPISP Director Dr Cynthia Gessling commended HRH the Crown Prince and Prime Minister's vision to upskill young Bahrainis and congratulated the candidates for being short-listed.
During the Candidacy Program, students will complete several courses with a focus on critical thinking, academic writing, leadership, and communications. Students will also undergo a career and personality aptitude test, prepare for standardized tests, and complete a Level 3 Certificate in Team Leading granted by the UK-based Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
The CPISP will announce the 10 scholarship recipients early next year. Recipients will be selected based on their academic merit and leadership qualities as determined by their Grade Point Averages (GPA), IELTS scores, SAT scores, and the scores of the critical thinking and leadership courses undertaken.
Dr Gessling thanked BIBF for continually sharing their expertise and wished the students a fruitful experience.
