Number of Chevening scholarships to double


As from this year the number of Seychellois chosen to study in the UK on Chevening scholarships will be doubled – going up from two to four per year.

It was the British high commissioner to Seychelles Lindsay Skoll who made the announcement at a ceremony to mark the 30th anniversary of the Chevening scholarship programme and to officially launch an association of former graduates of the scheme.

The Chevening Alumni Association was officially launched on Tuesday evening at the British high commissioner’s residence at Bel Air.

The Chevening scheme, now in its 30th year, allows future leaders, influencers and decision makers to pursue post-graduate studies at universities across the United Kingdom.
The reception to launch the association was attended by the founding President of Seychelles Sir James R. Mancham, Minister for Education Macsuzy Mondon, Minister for Natural Resources Peter Sinon and Chevening graduates.
