Harrow Beijing is pleased to announce the establishment of the Sir Joseph Banks Scholarship. This academic scholarship will provide up to 100% fee remission for talented young men and women to complete a two year A level course at Harrow Beijing. The scholarship is open to external candidates and is designed to help foster Leadership for a Better World. The Sir Joseph Banks scholarship will be awarded on merit following a scholarship test and interview.
Sir Joseph Banks, an old Harrovian, exemplified the spirit of Leadership for a Better World. His documentation of the flora on his many journeys around the world led him to hold the position of President of the Royal Society for over 40 years. Kew Gardens owes much of its fame to the work that he did advising King George III on its flora and design.
It has long been a part of the Harrow ethos to provide educational opportunities to a wide range of talented young people. We now wish to enable students in Beijing to contribute to our history and tradition and to become future leaders for a better world through enjoying the benefits of the Sir Joseph Banks Scholarship.
For candidates who are planning to start from Academic Year 2018/19, the deadline for application is 12 March 2018.
