The United Kingdom embassy in Montevideo has announced the opening of the application period of the Chevening Scholarships, which must be done before 8 November 2016. Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship program, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organizations, such as ANII here in Uruguay.
The program makes awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study one year postgraduate courses at universities in the UK.
Chevening/ANII scholarships will be awarded to study a Master’s degree in the United Kingdom in any area. The scholarships make awards to outstanding Uruguayan scholars with potential to rise to positions of leadership and influence.
New applicants will need to demonstrate that they possess the personal, intellectual and interpersonal attributes reflecting this potential.
Each award will provide full payment of academic tuition fees, 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 on-line before 8th November 2016. Further details are available on the Chevening website.
