Harrow Chongqing offers Scholarships to the most gifted applicants and existing students, in order to support, nurture and challenge their talents.
We believe that Scholars will be role models and ambassadors that inspire others, 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.
A Scholar at Harrow Chongqing is likely to have natural ability and talent but, most importantly, he or she has a genuine love of learning and a growth mindset which goes ‘above and beyond’ expectations. You can see their passion and enthusiasm for all facets of school life, including within the Super Curriculum and the Leadership and Service activities they take part in. Their conduct shall also be outstanding and worthy of a Harrovian.
The award of a Scholarship reflects our commitment to academic excellence for life and leadership, as well as the importance of being part of a community in which everyone thrives. Scholarship awards are much more than a financial remission. They are a personalised programme that works with the most able and talented students to better not only themselves, but also those around them.
