THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME

Harrow Shenzhen Qianhai offers Scholarships to the brightest and most gifted applicants to the school, in order to support, nurture and challenge their talents, their academic prowess and their dedication.

Harrow Shenzhen operates a Scholarship Programme which provides targeted, enhanced curricular provision for those students that are, based on current academic performance, on a trajectory to attend one of the world’s highly selective universities. The School is committed to ensuring that all students, including our most able, are challenged and stretched to fulfil their potential within and beyond the classroom.  

A Scholar at Harrow Shenzhen is likely to have natural ability and talent but, more importantly, he or she has a genuine love of learning and commitment to their subject. They regularly go ‘above and beyond’ in their work. You can see their passion and enthusiasm for learning and improving through the challenges they take on, both in terms of the Super Curriculum and the Leadership and Service activities they take part in. They might also have career aspirations in their specialism. We believe that Scholars will be role models and ambassadors that inspire other students and in so doing, will enhance and enrich the education and development of the school community. 

A scholarship is a financial award for excellence and its value may be up to 100% of the School tuition fee. In addition, honorary scholarships with no fee reduction may also sometimes be awarded to students in recognition of their achievements in the school.

The award of Scholarships reflects our commitment to academic excellence and personal development, as well as the importance of leadership and being part of a community in which everyone thrives. The award is much more than a financial remission. It is a personalised programme that works with the most able and talented students to better not only themselves but also those around them.

BURSARY

The School offers bursaries to ensure that talented students, irrespective of their parents’ income, are able to study at Harrow Shenzhen. All students are eligible to apply for bursaries. 

The granting of a bursary is discretionary, but only families who need the financial support are likely to receive bursary. In making its decisions, the School considers a wide range of appropriate matters including, but not limited to, parental/guardian income (from all sources), assets (including personal property) and other matters that are particular to the student, such as family circumstances. 

If parents indicate that they are likely to need bursary support, they will be asked to complete a strictly confidential form in order to assess their financial circumstances and establish the level of assistance that the School believes is required. All bursaries are reassessed annually by means of a newly completed form and disclosure of up-to-date financial circumstances.  

All students applying for a bursary are expected to satisfy the School’s academic entrance requirements and if the demand exceeds the number available, bursaries are awarded with reference to performance in the Entrance Examinations.  

To apply for a bursary, please fill out the form and email to: scholarships@harrowshenzhen.cn
