Talents, skills, experience, efficiency and of course hard work are trademarks of the Lebanese youth who keep proving themselves in a multitude of sectors and fields, in their country and everywhere in the four corners of the world. Here is a new opportunity for our Lebanese students residing in Lebanon to pursue their studies in the UK. The British Embassy in Beirut has announced that applications for Chevening Scholarships are now open, between 5 August and 5 November 2019.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds. The scholarship offers full financial support for future leaders to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university whilst also gaining access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural experiences.
Lebanese are eligible to apply under the Lebanon scheme, including the Rebecca Dykes Chevening Scholarship. This particular scholarship is granted every year – under the same Chevening criteria – to a female Lebanese residing in Lebanon to pursue her Master’s Degree in the UK in subject areas related to Gender Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, Development and Human Rights, and Refugee and Migration Studies, and other similar fields.
In Lebanon, the Chevening alumni network counts more than 200 alumni. For detailed information on the eligibility criteria and scholarship specifications, you may contact the Communications office at the British Embassy Beirut on 01-960852/3, or visit its website.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
