15 April

Caymanians interested in postgraduate study in Britain have until Friday, 15 April, to apply for a Chevening Scholarship Award.

The UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office programme offers funding to outstanding graduates for study at any of the many British universities that subscribe to the Chevening programme.

Awards are normally for one-year master’s programmes but may also be considered for other courses of a minimum three months’ duration.

The programme is intended for future leaders and decision-makers – successful applicants must demonstrate this level of potential.

There is strong competition for the limited number of scholarships that are offered each year.

Over the past 15 years, some 25 Caymanians have received Chevening scholarships for postgraduate study in Britain.

Previous scholars have returned to the Cayman Islands to take up employment in a number of government departments and elsewhere.

The Chevening programme is administered locally by the governor’s office and the education council.

Completed applications must be submitted by the 15 April, deadline.

Please contact Melenie Mylrea at the governor’s office at 244-2431 or [email protected] if you have any questions and for application forms.
