Huili Academic Scholarship Programme


By adhering to the educational vision of “cultivating virtuous and capable pupils by benevolence and spreading wisdom widely”, Huili School Shanghai is committed to successfully combing the inherent strengths of Eastern and Western education principles, while establishing the aptitudes and skills pupils need to become successful global citizens who are inspired, intellectual, independent, individual and inclusive. Based on this vision, Huili is proud to introduce the Academic Scholarship Programme in the academic year starting August 2020, which recognises outstanding academic achievement and all-round excellence.

Awards plan

  • After the evaluation and approval of Huili Scholarship Committee, awards of up to 50% of the annual tuition fees will be offered to candidates who can demonstrate a consistent and proven track record of excellent overall performance.

Who can apply

  • Pupils who will enter Grade 7 and above from August 2020

Awards criteria

We always pay full attention to the overall development of pupils beyond their academic performance. These following qualities also serve as a reference in the evaluation of suitability for the Huili Scholarship.

  • Leadership potential;
  • An exemplary behavioural record, unfailing kindness to their peers; and
  • An ability to act as a mentor and role model.

We wish to give the opportunity of a Huili education to outstanding pupils whose families would not be able to afford our full fees. The value of the award will be based upon the applicant family’s annual net income.

Those pupils awarded a scholarship will be expected to fully engage with every aspect of school life and the Huili community, including participation in sports teams and performing arts activities.

How to apply

  • Applicants must submit a handwritten bilingual personal statement of one A4 page outlining why they believe they would make a good Huili scholar.
  • Scanned copies of the personal statement should be submitted by email to
  • Successful candidates will be invited to a scholarship assessment day which will be held at the school shortly after the submission deadline.
