The blogging scholarship offers select students the opportunity to be a part of CSI student blog network while receiving a 100 GBP discount on their tuition. You are expected to write blog entries on a daily basis about your experiences and thoughts of our programmes, lectures, excursions, company visits, etc.
Students applying for the blogging scholarship should be familiar with the usage of a computer and internet. Prior blogging experience is a plus but not required.
The blogging scholarship has two goals:
1) The blog posts you provide will be read by thousands of future participants. Hence, you’ll be offering future students a better understanding of our programmes.
2) You’ll get the chance to learn basic web language, html, and how to add your own blog post into WordPress, the world’s most used blogging platform.
Your Daily Chore
You’re now a blogger! At the end of each day, spend a little time recapping the activities of the day focusing not only on facts, but also your thoughts. For example, you received a lecture on “doing business in China”. Instead of blogging about what the lecture is about, write your feedback on how this lecture applies to you, what you would do differently, or if you plan on applying its tactics in the future.
Each blog post should be 300 words or more. While pictures are not required, it’ll be great if you could attach pictures to your post as “pictures are worth a thousand words”.
What Should You Blog About?
We want to offer participants an open-ended topic to encourage creativity; therefore, we’re not designating any specific post topics. Please just keep the blogs relative to what future students will want to know about our programmes. For instance, you can write about your thoughts on the dorms, the food, lectures, group activities, or even how you had free time and found a nice gift shop around the corner.
We’ll leave it up to your discretion to keep blog topics on track and to stray away from inappropriate topics, stories, and words.
