Application Deadline: 1st of December 2014 at 23:00 GMT.
The Reach Cambridge scholarship essay competition is designed for academically excellent high school students who would otherwise not be able to attend our summer programs.
The essay question for this year’s scholarship competition is:
“In an age of quick & easy global communication, what is the value of face-to-face interaction and learning with other school students from all over the world?”
To craft a good essay requires careful argumentation, clear structure and personality. It is these characteristics that we will look for in judging applicants’ essays. We will also take into account the letter of recommendation supplied by your school.
3 week scholarship prize (awarded to a maximum of 2 students): 100% of the program fee for either our 3 week July or our 3 week August course in 2015.
1 week scholarship prize (awarded to a maximum of 3 students): 100% of the program fee for our 1 week Global Leaders course in 2015.
