BWYA Celebrates Excellence with New Scholarship Awards

Beijing World Youth Academy (BWYA) has launched a new Scholarship Awards scheme designed to recognise and celebrate excellence and outstanding achievement amongst its students.

At the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, 11 students were presented with the scholarship awards and each one will receive a tuition fee reduction.

The new initiative rewards students based on their academic performance, community involvement and personal growth over the course of a complete academic year.

Robert Wang, BWYA IB school Principal, said: “We are extremely proud of all of our students and we wanted to create something that recognises students who go the extra mile, both inside and outside the classroom. The new Scholarship Awards scheme gives credit to the students who earn it and, we believe, inspire and motivate the whole school. It is a very aspirational award that has helped us to define just what excellence is in our learning community.

“It’s not just about a students’ academic achievements, although these are central to the awards. Students also have to demonstrate leadership and commitment to the wider community through our student council or extensive clubs and extra-curricular activities programme.  Personal growth and self-improvement are also a big part of the process, as are standards of behavior, and the winning students really encapsulate what it means to be a BWYA learner.”

There is no limit on the number of students who can be awarded the scholarship prize each year and awards are given in three categories, first prize, second prize and third prize. Potential winners are selected by BWYA’s Scholarship Awards Committee and presented to the School Board for approval.
