They the winners of the “Heritage Scholarships” Program, launched to promote quality education in the Republic of Moldova and to facilitate students’ access to international education. Through this program, Heritage International School aims to support the academic and extracurricular performance of the most talented students, to encourage them in developing their social and practical skills and engaging in various activities and projects.
Robert Ford, Director of Heritage International School: “Heritage International School has undertaken to provide the best international education here in the country. We apply learning through critical thinking to make the world less abstract, to help students broaden their horizons and think internationally, thus preparing them for the challenges of the future and to become the future leaders of tomorrow. With our unique approach, we align the education in the Republic of Moldova to the highest world standards, and in the next school year we will further expand our global curriculum and our educational opportunities. Through ‘Heritage Scholarships’ Program we want talented students to be able to experience an authentic international experience, that makes this school truly remarkable in Moldova, in Europe and in our global community.”
The competition for the selection of Heritage scholars took place in two stages. During the first stage, the candidates submitted their applications, containing confirmatory documents on academic records, as well as evidence of extracurricular activities/projects in which the students have been involved in recent years. The files were examined by the members of the Committee of Experts and the Executive Committee so that the eligible ones were finally selected. Only candidates who met the requirements of the Regulations went on to the second stage – the interview. In the first part of the interview the participants were asked to show creativity in making their personal presentation, which they had the freedom to do in various ways: in the form of a game, a monologue, a recorded video, etc. In the second part they were invited to give ingenious and original answers to the jury’s questions, customized and inspired by the information presented in each of the participants’ files. In order to designate the winners, the jury members also took into account the candidates’ abilities to present themselves in public, to express themselves correctly and coherently, but also the students’ creativity.
The three winners were designated based on excellent academic records, which means an average grade for the last years of studies of at least 9.5, including in English. Their active participation in various academic activities (some of which were carried out abroad), as well as volunteering in various projects was also taken into account.
The Heritage Scholarship means that the holder gets an exemption (100% discount) on the tuition fees and cannot receive its value in cash form. The scholarship includes: the full Heritage academic program and the attendance of Heritage extracurricular clubs free of charge. Heritage scholarships are valid for an academic year (2019-2020), with the possibility of being prolonged for the subsequent school years, provided the beneficiaries reconfirm their academic and extracurricular achievements.
The “Heritage Scholarships” Program was launched on May 15, at the initiative of the founders of Heritage International School, to support the best Moldovan students in grades VI-IX. The initiative is part of “GO Heritage”, the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of Heritage International School, which provides for: the development and promotion of quality education, the encouragement of civic spirit through volunteer actions, philanthropy, community development, environmental protection, developing the Heritage Community and enhancing business ethics.
