UK envoy greets 16 Chevening awardees from Bangladesh
Moon Desk: British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson has said Chevening represents the very best of the UK, welcoming exceptional people from across the world to study, grow, and thrive at some of the world’s best universities.
“I congratulate the 16 Chevening awardees from Bangladesh for the 2022-2023 cycle and wish them the very best,” he said.
The British high commissioner congratulated this year`s cohort of Chevening awardees from Bangladesh at a reception at his residence.
This year, 16 outstanding Bangladeshis have received Chevening Scholarships and will soon be leaving for the UK to start one-year master’s degrees at some of the world’s most prestigious universities, said the high commission on Wednesday.
“Being part of the Chevening network offers participants extra opportunities and instils a particular sense of pride. I am consistently impressed by the passion and commitment of the scholars and alumni I meet,” said Dickson.
Bangladesh has over 350 successful Chevening alumni. Chevening scholars in Bangladesh hold prominent positions in government, the private sector and academia.
Applications for the next cohort (2023/24) of Chevening Scholarships to study in the UK are open until 1 November 2022, with applications to be submitted via www.chevening.org/apply
