The application period for the Chevening Scholarships programme to study in the UK will be open from 5 August to 5 November 2019. The potential candidates will have to submit their application through www.chevening.org/apply.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential, strong academic backgrounds and a proven capacity for effective networking. The programme offers complete financial support (including tuition fees, flights and a monthly stipend) to study any eligible master’s degree at any UK university. Likewise, the scholars can enjoy a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural experiences in Britain.
Since the creation of the programme in 1983, over 50.000 professionals (including 430 Venezuelans) have had the opportunity to study in the UK through Chevening. For the 2020-2021 academic period, there will be over 1.500 available scholarships worldwide, reaffirming the UK’s commitment with the development of future world leaders.
In the case of Venezuela, 11 scholarships were awarded for the 2018-2019 academic period and ten additional scholarships for 2019-2020.
The British Ambassador to Venezuela, Andrew Soper, said:
The British Government is helping promote Venezuela’s development and prosperity by investing in the next generation of leaders through our Chevening Scholarship Programme. These cover all the costs of studying a one-year master’s degree at one of Britain’s excellent universities. This not only provides a world class education, but also a fantastic opportunity to enjoy all that the UK has to offer.
Chevening Scholars become part of a worldwide alumni network offering support, advice and shared experiences. If you are an ambitious, dedicated young Venezuelan who wants to make a positive difference to your country’s future, please take a look at the Chevening programme and submit your application before 5 November.
For the 2020-2021 academic period, human rights (including freedom of expression, gender equality and democratic capacity building), humanitarian affairs, sustainable development, climate change and energy are part of the priority areas for the British Embassy in Caracas.
