It is our pleasure to announce that the Harvard Model Congress Europe (HMCE) has released the names of BSB Nexus students who have achieved the scholarship to attend HMCE Conference in Madrid (15th to 19th March 2019). Aliya, Kristina, Andres and Vicente have achieved a full scholarship whilst Marcus and Liza have achieved a partial scholarship.
To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants were requested to fill out a 500-word essay explaining their interest in the conference and their passion for politics, and also submit a short video or audio recording in which they briefly describe a political problem facing their country. The financial aid may cover the delegate fee (full/partial), the hotel fee (full/partial in some circumstances) and/or a compensation for travel cost (full).
With 6 out of 19 students recognised for their level of pre-Conference engagement, we want to say a big thank to all of them as well as to Garrity as the Leader of this CAS Project.

>>> Next stop – Madrid!
Harvard Model Congress Europe (HMCE) is the premier international government simulation available to Pre-University students. Run exclusively by undergraduates at Harvard College, this educational conference challenges students to simulate and engage in the same issues that actual government organisations are facing. Through role-play and simulation of open debates, caucuses, trials, press conferences, and testimonies, students hone 21st century critical skills —making compromises, public speaking, strategic negotiation— that they will be able to apply in a variety of settings in tomorrow’s world.
HMCE 2019 will feature a diverse array of committees. In the Domestic Programs, these committees include the District Court, US House of Representatives, Media, National Security Council, US Senate, and the Supreme Court. In the International Programs, these committees include the European Commission, World Health Organization, the United Nations Security Council, and many other influential bodies.
