Yesterday evening, Deputy British High Commissioner Susie Kitchens waved off the Kenyan 2019/20 Chevening Scholars.
Among the subjects being studied by this year’s cohort are data science, public policy, tax law and health at some of the world’s top universities in the UK.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds and a strong vision for the future. The scholarship offers full financial support to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university whilst also giving access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural experiences.
Tanzania’s Chevening scholars have also been waved off by UK High Commissioner, Sarah Cooke which she described as one of her favourite events of the year.
Applications for Chevening Scholarships to study in the UK are open until 5 November 2019, with applications to be submitted via www.chevening.org/apply.
