Scholarships & Exhibitions
For the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (grades 11 and 12) and Pre-IB (grade 10)
Each year, Copenhagen International School (CIS) offers a number of scholarships and exhibitions for both international and Danish students who wish to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
IMPORTANT: According to Danish law, you cannot get a student visa for upper secondary education unless you live in Denmark with tax paying parents or legal guardians.
- Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who are academically exceptional, well-rounded students.
- Exhibitions will be awarded to applicants who are academically excellent, well-rounded students.
- Students who have been awarded scholarships or exhibitions will be at an advantage when applying to universities and colleges.
- For scholarship applicants who require financial assistance in order to enter CIS for grades 11 to 12, the school is offering a number of financial awards, with financial assistance to cover up to 85% of the tuition, registration and application fees. Parents will be asked for documentation to support the application for financial assistance. The Application and Registration Fees are NOT payable at this stage. Successful scholarship applicants will pay a percentage of these fees once they have been accepted.
- A number of financial scholarships are also available to students entering Pre-IB/grade 10. The financial assistance may cover up to 85% of the tuition fees. Parents will be asked for documentation to support the application for financial assistance. The Application and Registration Fees are NOT payable at this stage. Successful scholarship applicants will pay a percentage of these fees once they have been accepted.
- Honours scholarships and exhibitions are available to students who do not require financial assistance, but fulfil the other criteria. These do not offer any financial benefit.
- Applicants who are not awarded a scholarship may still be considered for a reduced fee.
Applicants are free to determine how they wish to present their application. However, the following information is mandatory:
- A personal statement (in three copies, please) as to the reason for your application for a scholarship at CIS, indicating what you can contribute to the school;
- Personal details including name, date of birth, parents' names, parents' employment, address, telephone number, email address, nationality. For external applicants, this requirement should be completed by filling in the Online Application Forms; please put "Scholarship Application" in the "comments" field of the online application in order to avoid being billed for the Application and Registration Fees;
- Three copies of previous reports (end-of-year) and the CIS School Information Form;
- Names, addresses, titles and contact addresses/telephone/email of academic and other referees (in three copies, please).
Applicants will be required to take a test in English and Mathematics. All candidates should bring with them a portfolio of their best work and three letters of recommendation from teachers. Successful examination candidates will then be invited for an interview.
Applications, and supporting documentation in three copies, addressed to the Admissions Officer, must reach the school by January 31, 2013 for scholarships beginning in August 2013. Tests will take place on February 5, 2013 and short-listed applicants will subsequently be invited for an interview on February 26, 2013. Final decisions will be communicated to candidates by March 1, 2013.
