Applicants who meet the qualification criteria (Bahraini citizenship, enrolled in the 11th grade, and GPA of 97% or above) are invited by the CPISP to take a series of qualifying tests to assess their English proficiency and critical reasoning abilities. A minimum of 60 students are then selected as scholarship candidates based on their GPAs and results of the qualifying tests, with the following breakdown:

20 Public School Boys
20 Public School Girls
10 Private School Boys
10 Private School Girls

Candidates undergo training and various educational workshops over the summer and throughout the academic year, before the selection of the final recipients. The CPISP works in cooperation with local institutions, arranging for the candidates to take part in critical thinking and leadership training, and offers foundation courses to prepare students for the IELTS and SAT exams.

Candidates also receive personality and career path assessment, take part in an academic writing course, and complete a Level 3 certificate in Team Leading from the Chartered Management Institute, as well as attend guest lectures on various topics related to their academic and career plans, and personal development. Training concludes with a specially organized Team Building Day, and culminates with a Candidate Recognition Ceremony to honor all candidates for completing the selection process requirements.
