The United Kingdom Chevening Secretariat is accepting applications for 2017/2018 Chevening Scholarships from 8 August until 8 November 2016, announced the British Embassy in Buenos Aires. Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds.
The scholarship offers financial support to study for a master’s degree at any UK university and the opportunity to become part of an influential global network of 46,000 alumni.
Candidates for the UK Government’s Chevening Scholarships can register and complete the application form via www.chevening.org/apply.
The call for new applicants follows the selection of more than 30 scholars from Argentina, who won an award to study at a UK university this year.
There are more than 1,500 Chevening Scholarships on offer globally for the 2017/2018 academic cycle. These scholarships represent a significant investment from the UK Government to develop the next cohort of global leaders.
Applicants from Argentina can choose any course of study, but we particularly welcome applications in the following fields: Public Policy; Economy; Trade and Industry; Communications and Media.
