British Embassy Morocco announced last week the launch of Chevening Scholarship for 2017/2018.
Chevening is a global scholarship funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and partner organizations.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to candidates pursuing leadership-related masters for one year at any UK university. Applicants in Morocco should select one of the flowing fields of study: economic development (including sustainable development and environmental issues), good governance and Public Policy, security and justice, human rights, Media and communications or International relations.
The scholarship covers university tuition fees, a monthly stipend, travel costs to and from the UK, an arrival allowance, a homeward departure allowance, the cost of one visa application, a travel grant to attend Chevening events in the UK.
“Chevening scholarships provide a fantastic opportunity to gain academic experience while experiencing life in the UK. Our previous Moroccan Chevening scholars have gone on to play impressive roles in all areas of Moroccan life,” the British Ambassador to Morocco, Karen Bretts, said.
“I encourage all talented individuals who have clear leadership qualities and the drive to contribute to Morocco’s future to apply for these scholarships,” he added.
Applications for the scholarship started on Monday August 8, 2016 and will end on November 8, 2016.
