The Chevening Secretariat is currently accepting applications for 2019/20 Chevening Scholarships via until Tuesday, 6 November 2018.

Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds. The scholarship offers full financial support for future leaders to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university whilst also gaining access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural experiences.

St Helena Chevening Officer, Sandra Sim said:

“The Chevening Scholarship programme provides an ideal opportunity for scholars in the Territory to develop their qualifications to a higher standard.  I would encourage those who meet the Chevening criteria, and who are keen to become future leaders, to apply for the Scholarship and take their studies to the next level with a view to reaching their goals.”

A Chevening stall will be held in front of the Canister on Thursday, 27 September 2018, from 11am to 1pm for those who might be interested in applying for a scholarship. There will be information packs available containing details on eligibility and other requirements. It is hoped that as many people as possible will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about Chevening Scholarships and possibly apply or encourage others to apply.
