British Embassy Montevideo and The National Research and Innovation Agency signed an agreement to triple the number of scholarships.

This year three Chevening/ANII scholarships will be awarded to study a Master’s degree in the United Kingdom in the areas of Energy (including Renewable Energy), International Relations, Health, Environment and Biodiversity, Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

These scholarships are targeted at outstanding Uruguayan scholars with the potential to rise to positions of leadership and influence. Applicants will need to demonstrate that they possess the personal, intellectual and interpersonal attributes reflecting this potential.

Each award will provide tuition fees to a limit of £13,000, including examination and thesis costs, a monthly stipend for living expenses sufficient for a single student, an allowance package and a return airfare.

Applications for the scholarships must be made through the on-line application system e-Chevening, before 15th November 2013.

Further details about how to apply are available on the Chevening webpage
