Future leaders in the Turks and Caicos Islands Public and Private Sectors urged to apply for a Chevening Scholarship to study in the UK

Turks and Caicos, August 9, 2017 – Providenciales – Talented professionals from throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands, public and private sector, are able to apply for a fully-funded one year Masters Degree, under the UK’s Flagship scholar programme supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organizations.

The Chevening Scholarship Programme is a global scholarship programme aimed at future leaders.   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 gaining access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural events.

Lormeka WilliamsTCI has been successful in having three talented individuals awarded this Scholarship in the past three years, Mrs Kenisha Bacchus, who currently works as a Legal Consul for the TCI Financial Services Commission (awarded in 2014) and Miss Myrlchina Lewis, who has recently been appointed as Financial Manager within the Accountant General’s Office (awarded in 2015) and Mrs.   Lormeka Morley-Williams who is currently in the UK finishing up her studies (awarded in 2016).

The Governor, Dr. John Freeman said:  “The UK continues to play a leading role globally.   Home to some of the world’s best universities, brightest students, and most revered academics, the UK’s higher education sector promotes the exchange of information and ideas, as well as the building of knowledge and networks.   Chevening Scholars find themselves immersed in that world, and emerge having grown academically, professionally, and personally as a result of their time in the UK.

Chevening Scholars share the best their country has to offer with those they meet in the UK, and then share the best the UK has to offer when they return home.   The role Chevening Scholars and Chevening Alumni play in building bridges between countries is as important now as it has ever been.

 Over the last 34 years, many others have been selected for a Chevening Scholarship and have subsequently gone on to become respected leaders across a range of sectors.    Becoming a part of the Chevening network instils a strong sense of pride and responsibility.    I’ve personally seen how this opportunity is able to transform lives.”
