UK Opens Fresh Applications For Chevening Scholarships

The applications for Chevening Scholarships to study in the United Kingdom (UK) commenced on Tuesday, September 12, and will last till November 7, 2023 while they are to be submitted via the online application form portal via chevening.org/apply.

Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), and partner organisations.

The scholarships support one-year taught Master’s degrees at UK universities for individuals with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision-makers, and opinion formers.

The British High Commission in Nigeria disclosed this in a statement signed by Senior Communications and Public Diplomacy Officer, Atinuke Akande-Alegbe.

According to the statement, the call for new applicants follows the selection of 44 scholars from Nigeria, who won an award to study at a UK university this year.

It quoted the Head of Scholarships at the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, Emma Hennessey, as saying that, “Chevening Scholars, Fellows, and Alumni use the skills and knowledge they gain while studying in the UK to drive change, promoting better lives and safer places for people around the world to live, work, and thrive.

“Ahevening represents the very best of the UK and the world, and our scholars become part of the global Chevening network of over 55,000 alumni. I am always inspired by the passion and commitment of those in the Chevening community and I look forward to receiving applications from the next generation.”

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr. Richard Montgomery, said: “If you are someone who is passionate about driving change, whether on a local or global scale, if you want to be the best at what you do and if you have the imagination to inspire others, then a Chevening Scholarship could be the perfect opportunity for you.

“There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ scholar. Your age, race, gender, religion, and cultural background do not matter to us. We want to see that you have energy, curiosity, compassion a clear vision for your future and the ability to achieve your goals.

“Our alumni network is full of dynamic influencers who have shared the same experience that you will. They can offer encouragement, mentorship, advice, and contacts. When you return home after your studies you should feel well-equipped to start making a real difference in Nigeria.”

Also, a 2023 Nigerian Chevening Scholar, Joseph Ugwu, said the scholarship offers numerous incredible benefits, including many that money can not buy and be found elsewhere; such as the opportunity to be a part of an exclusive, genuine, and global community of influential leaders.
