Past St Helena Chevening Scholar, Dax Richards, encourages potential future scholars to take advantage of this opportunity. Dax said:

“The Chevening Scholarship Programme is an outlet for anyone interested in accomplishing their career aspirations. I was fortunate to be given that opportunity by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to access the Scholarship that set me on the path to becoming a qualified Accountant. I would encourage anyone thinking about taking the step to the next level to apply for the Chevening Scholarship and benefit from the experience of studying and the support network associated with this Programme.”

Manager of the Governor’s Office, Kerry Lane, is able to provide advice and support locally. For more information, please call Kerry on 22308 or email her via:
