Beijing City International School's (BCIS) Scholarship Program inspires and nurtures exceptional talents for extraordinary high school students who embody and exemplify the BCIS mission and vision. Every year BCIS awards full and partial Academic and Merit Scholarships to students who demonstrate excellence and outstanding potential in academic or non-academic areas. We invite applications for next academic year from March 1, 2020.

Recent BCIS Scholarship recipients shared their experiences and reflections on the BCIS Scholarship Program.


BCIS Academic Scholarship - IB Diploma Programme

The BCIS Scholarship allowed me to change my viewpoint of the world. It assisted me financially but also mentally as I further explored my future. As a person who pursues dreams and goals rather than money itself, it was a great opportunity for me, and will be for others who are uncertain about their future. After receiving the BCIS Scholarship confirmation e-mail, I really looked forward to studying with students from all over the world. The Scholarship allowed me to work toward my dream of studying veterinary medicine and animal protection in South Korea or Canada. For those hesitant about their future and considering applying, I would highly recommend pursuing a BCIS Scholarship because of the way it offers an opportunity for you to pursue your dreams and goals, as it has done for me.


BCIS Merit Arts Scholarship – BCIS IDEATE Program

The BCIS Scholarship helped me in a very practical way by alleviating financial pressure, allowing me to focus on applying for colleges and realize my dream of going to an art college to study art and graphic design. As a result, I had greater college interview opportunities. At present, I have received two university admission notices, with both schools offering to provide me with a presidential scholarship of $58,800 and a creative vision scholarship of $52,000. This has motivated me to continue my search for more competitive scholarship admission offers from other schools. Being a BCIS Scholarship recipient has also brought me some positive "stress and responsibility" to a certain extent, which has inspired me to work harder and achieve greater success in the face of new challenges.


BCIS Merit Sports Scholarship - IB Diploma Programme

As an athletic Scholarship recipient, I am very proud of my sporting achievements for BCIS, it means the school recognizes my ability and accomplishments. It motivates me to strive to pursue a career in the field of sports. It gives me a lot of confidence doing the things I love, for instance, a week after I received the Scholarship, I was able to get the opportunity to have two football trials with professional teams in Qingdao, which was always my dream. The Scholarship also helps me to maintain a balanced lifestyle between sports and academics, it reinforces the importance of being balanced in all aspects of life. In the future, I want to study sports and sports science in the UK, and I have already received conditional offers from five UK universities. I would like to say to those considering applying for the BCIS scholarship program, don't be afraid to apply, if you believe you are talented at something, then go for it!


BCIS Merit Drama Scholarship - IB Diploma Programme

I consider it a great honor to be awarded a BCIS Merit Scholarship and to be recognized as a valuable member of the school. The application process was a great experience because it's quite similar to a college application and it gave me an opportunity to get organized and reflect on the experiences I've had throughout the years. Receiving the Scholarship has definitely motivated me to work harder in both my academics and community service. The BCIS Merit Scholarship is really flexible; it recognizes students from all kinds of fields. You don't necessarily have to be a "straight-A" student to receive the scholarship; grades do matter, but it's more about the contributions you have made to the community, which essentially gives everyone a fair chance to be a scholarship candidate.

BCIS Academic and Merit scholarships are open to students of all nationalities irrespective of family financial status. Students who are currently studying at BCIS, and students who are currently studying at other schools are invited to apply. Applicants will need to complete high school at BCIS, studying the full IB Diploma Programme (DP) or BCIS IDEATE Program in Grades 11-12.
