Chevening Scholars

#Providenciales, August 7, 2018 – Turks and Caicos – Talented professionals from throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands, public and private sector, are able to apply for a fully-funded one year Master’s 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.

TCI has been successful in having five talented individuals awarded this Scholarship in the past four years.  Mrs Kenisha Bacchus, who currently works as a Legal Consul for the TCI Financial Services Commission (awarded in 2014), Miss Myrlchina Lewis, Financial Manager within the Accountant General’s Office (awarded in 2015), Mrs Lormeka Morley-Williams who has also recently been appointed as Deputy Director within the Department of Environmental and Coastal Resources(awarded in 2016),Mrs. Jasmine Parker-Thomas  is currently in the UK finishing up her studies (awarded in 2017) and Ms Chandra Craigg who has been awarded for 2018 to study  an MSc in Marketing and Digital strategy.

The Governor, Dr. John Freeman said:

“We are looking for ambitious, professional, forward-thinking leaders from any walk of life.  There is no such thing as a “typical” Chevening Scholar, but one thing that all of our previous scholars have in common is that they were bold enough to step forward and apply.

‘If you are chosen for Chevening, you will receive a first-rate UK education which can open doors in your career.  You will also become part of the global Chevening Alumni network full of dynamic influencers who have shared the same experience as you will, and can offer mentorship, advice, and contacts.

There is a lot to potentially gain from submitting a thoughtful application, so if you or someone you know has what it takes to be a Chevening Scholar, I would encourage you to apply before the 6 November deadline.”
