Three Dominicans are among a record number of Chevening Scholarship recipients awarded to nationals of Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean in 2016.

Eighteen (18) Scholars were presented with certificates by High Commissioner Victoria Dean at a ceremony at the British High Commission in Barbados recently.

The scholars from Dominica are:

-Cherysa Anselm studying Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering at UCL University of London
-Fernillia Felix studying International Human Rights and Social Justice Law at London Metropolitan University
-Oscar George studying Economic Development and Policy Analysis at the University of Nottingham

The other recipients are from Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The Chevening Scholarships scheme is the global scholarship programme of the British government.

The Scholarships are awarded to exceptional individuals with leadership potential and they enable recipients to study one-year Masters courses in a range of subjects at UK universities.

The Scholarships are funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and aim to support UK foreign policy priorities by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision makers.

The application period for Scholarships for study beginning in September 2017 is now open.
