Chevening Scolarships in Uruguay
Masters in UK with all expenses paid
29 Uruguayans will be travelling shortly to the United Kingdom to pursue Masters degrees through Chevening scholarships. These scholarships are funded by the British government and 11 of them have been co-funded by the Agencia Nacional de Investigación e Innovación in Uruguay, ANII.
In the past two years 59 Uruguayan professionals obtained Chevening scholarships, a record in Uruguay which puts us in the same level than others countries with larger population, on a per capita basis.
At the farewell offered at his residence, the British Ambassador Ben Lyster-Binns said that Cheveners will be “taking advantage of this great opportunity to continue their studies at world class universities before returning to Uruguay to share their experience and contribute to the benefit of the country”. Uruguay has more than 100 former Chevening scholars belonging to the Graduates from British Universities Association.
The Chevening scholarship programme is directed towards outstanding scholars with potential to rise to positions of leadership and influence. Applicants can choose the course they prefer at any university. Each scholarship will provide full payment of academic tuition fees, a monthly stipend for living expenses sufficient for a single student, and a return airfare.
Applications for the scholarships must be made on-line before 8th November 2016.
The British Embassy will offer two informative talks where potential applicants can find out more: -Saturday 10 September, 14:00 hours, Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias de la Educación, Universidad de la República - Saturday, September 17, 17:00 hours, Sala de Conferencias ARU, Expo Prado
