“I was really pleased to receive the Chevening Scholarship as I had always thought it impossible for me to attend university and achieve a Degree.  Applying for a scholarship was one of the best decisions I have made in my life – not only have I been able to further my education but it has given me great life experience. 

“The Chevening team were very supportive and the scholarship has given me innumerable opportunities throughout my life.  I really hope others will take advantage of this life changing opportunity.” – Tracey Williams, St Helena Chevening Scholar (2002)
