BCIS Academic Scholarship - IB Diploma Programme

I used the BCIS scholarship funding to pay for living expenses while I participated in laboratory work and a hospital internship in Hebei province during summer vacation, which was a truly fulfilling experience. I am interested in medicine, and I've received an offer from Wellesley College where I will pursue a dual degree in neurology and economics.


BCIS Merit Scholarship- IB Diploma Programme

Receiving the BCIS Scholarship,I felt represented a form of recognition and trust and has made me feel a sense of responsibility in being a key member in the community.At the same time, it motivatedme to study and live formy future. I found the scholarship application process itself a very valuable experience. You are also allowed to apply for both the Academic and Merit Scholarships, which helps you to better evaluate and understand your efforts and achievements.


BCIS Academic Scholarship – IB Diploma Programme

The BCIS Scholarship funding allowed me to go to the United States for a summer course and an internship at an insurance company, which gave me the opportunity to research and explore different areas of business and economics that interest me.As a scholarship recipient, I try my best to contribute to the BCIS community bybeing more active in school. For example, this year, I founded an investment club, where we participated in an investment competition, and became the co-leader of BCIS Editorial. I have also deepened my involvement in extracurricular activities, joining Student Council, Avenir, Power Hour, IST, U19 Girls Basketball, and more!


BCIS Academic Scholarship – IB Diploma Programme

Receiving a BCIS Scholarship, I felt that my dreams were made more concrete and I was more committed to pursuing my goals. I felt encouraged as my contributions to the BCIS family were recognized and accepted. After receiving the scholarship, I was eager to participate in social events by participating in artisitc performances for the community, willing to help out others, and pass on my knowledge to other, younger students through teaching and tutoring. I hope to contribute more to the community before graduation.
