GOOBJOOG NEWS|MOGADISHU: Chevening Scholarships to study in the UK are now open for all Somalis between August 3 and November 2, 2021.
All successful applicants get to be offered full financial support to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university and are awarded to individuals who can demonstrate the willingness and commitment required to create positive change.
While announcing the opening of 2021/22 Chevening Scholarship, the British Ambassador to Somalia called on as many Somalis as possible to compete for the life-changing opportunity.
“Since 2016, the Chevening Scholarship programme has so far benefitted 41 Somalis some of whom are now working at senior levels in government, private sector and international organisations,” the British Ambassador to Somalia said.
Amidst the Pandemic
Even in the context of Covid- 19, 11 Somali scholars will depart for the UK in September to undertake their Chevening award for a one-year Master’s Degree programme in various universities spread across the country.
“As the world continues to tackle major global issues such as Covid-19 and climate change, international cooperation is more essential than ever. Chevening seeks to build an international community of people who are committed to working together to drive positive change. We do this by bringing together incredible people from around the world and supporting them, through education, to achieve their goals,” the Head of Scholarships at the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Naomi Rayner, said.
