15 Nepali youths win Chevening Scholarship


Kathmandu, August 30, 2017: As many as 15 Nepali youths have been awarded with the prestigious Chevening Scholarship for the year 2017/18.

These scholars will fly to UK this September to study for a Master’s degree in various UK universities.

Chevening is a fully funded scholarships program which includes university tuition fees, a monthly stipend, travel costs to and from the UK, arrival allowance, a thesis grant, grant for study materials, study travel allowance, the cost of one visa application, and a travel grant to attend Chevening events in the UK.

Meanwhile, applications have opened for 2018/2019 Chevening Scholarships via www.chevening.org/apply until 8 November 2017.

British Ambassador to Nepal, HE Richard Morris, said, “The UK is home to many of the world’s best universities. The Chevening Scholarship Scheme enables you to develop academically, professionally and personally while studying in the UK. The Scholarships are awarded to exceptional individuals with leadership potential, who want to learn and return to Nepal to share their knowledge and experience. If that describes you and you are interested in studying for a Master’s degree (one year) at a leading UK university, please apply.”
