On Tuesday 27 August the British High Commission hosted a reception to celebrate and bid farewell to 11 recipients of this year’s Chevening awards. The event was attended by honourable Ministers, members of the diplomatic community, Chevening alumni and family members of the scholars.
The Chevening scholars will be studying at leading UK academic institutions, across a range of subjects that have the potential to advance The Gambia’s development agenda. They will also use their time in the United Kingdom to explore the culture, develop a strong professional network and build a lasting connection with the country.
Each year the UK Government proudly supports Gambian future leaders through its Chevening Scholarship Programme, a scheme that offers future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world the chance to develop professionally and academically.
The window for applying for 2020/ 2021 Chevening Scholarships is now open until 5 November 2019. The British High Commission actively encourages potential candidates to research and apply via the website www.chevening.org/apply.
