The ceremony to award the Chevening Scholarships to the seven young people selected to complete their master’s studies at prestigious British universities took place at the official residence of the heads of the UK diplomatic mission.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Chevening Scholarship Program in Venezuela, which has enabled several hundred young people to specialize in various fields.
Seven university students were selected from the 2022 call: Andrés Salerno Ocanto, Giorgio Cunto Morales, Eddward José Rangel Medina, Samuel Isaías Espinoza Matheus, Marian Da Silva Parra, Alexandra Claret Delsol González and Roxanne del Carmen Cabrera Baptista.
This group, like the previous ones, was chosen because of its excellent academic performance, leadership qualities and willingness to commit to the development of Venezuela, as noted on the afternoon of the presentation of the certificates.
This program not only enables them to grow academically, both in humanistic and scientific terms, but also expands their vision as global citizens through contact with other cultures.
The program offers full financial support to study all Masters courses offered by universities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The scholarship recipients were addressed by Alexander Kushnarev, Chevening Scholarship Officer at the Embassy of the United Kingdom, who highlighted the importance of this program, which benefits young people from all over the world; and Colin Dick, Chargé d’Affaires of the British diplomatic delegation, who noted the importance of the program, which aims to benefit developing countries by training young people in various disciplines.
On September 12, the application period for the Chevening Scholarship reopened, offering a new opportunity to have an enriching experience while becoming part of a lifelong global leadership network.
