The CPISP initiates its Candidacy Program: 30 June 2024

The Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) has started its ‘Candidacy Program’, for its 2025 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

Mrs. Ava Garbutt, CPISP Director, commended His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister's far-reaching vision to invest and upskill young Bahraini nationals, and congratulated the candidates for being short-listed.

During the Candidacy Program, students will complete a number of 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 scholarship recipients early next year. Recipients will be selected based upon their academic merit and leadership qualities as determined by their Grade Point Averages (GPA), IELTS score, SAT scores, and the scores of the critical thinking and leadership courses undertaken.

Mrs. Ava concluded by thanking the BIBF for continually sharing their expertise and wished the students a fruitful experience.
