Nine Panamenian students receive the prestigious Chevenning Scholarship to pursue Masters Degrees in the United Kingdom
This year 9 bright students were selected for the prestigious Chevening Scholarship Programme.
The British Embassy has the honour to announce the 9 bright students selected for the prestigious Chevening Scholarship Programme for Masters Degrees in the UK. The Chevening Scholarship Programme was established in 1984 to provide opportunities for outstanding students to further their studies in the UK.
The origin of its name comes from the family Chevening Sevenoaks district of Kent, the official place of residence of the British Foreign Minister. The main purpose of the Scholarship Programme is equipped with the necessary bright awarded a personal and professional level in the fields of business, politics, science or any other business tools, not only for their benefit but also for that of their community and their country’s progress.
The selection process was conducted according to high standards of transparency and integrity. Once students submit their papers, the first filter is done by the Chevening Secretariat in London, followed by interviews with a specialized panel from the British Embassy in Panama City. This year, the Institute for Training and Development of Human Resources (IFARHU) has joined the efforts of the Embassy and has contributed financially to support the students selected.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Kingdom and the British Embassy in Panama City remain committed to award scholarships to outstanding students who in turn have a responsibility to create a better world. The UK urges the Panamanian society to perceive the country, regardless of curriculum or program of scholarships, to choose the UK as their 1st option for education in order to face up to the challenges of the XXI century. In addition, the UK is a reference for democratic tradition, committing to the rule of law and human rights which are values embedded in academic institutions.
The Chevening Scholarship Programme is a sign of long-term commitment of the United Kingdom with Panama.
