After a selection process that started in August 2018 and concluded with an award ceremony in August 2019, the future leaders and decision makers of Paraguay are in the UK ready to start their masters’ degrees studies for the 2019-20 period.

They gathered in London on the 12th October for the Orientation event where they were welcomed with inspiring talks and networking activities, along with other 1,700 scholars from over 160 countries.

Since the reopening of the embassy in 2013, the number of scholars has increased thanks to agreements with partners such as BECAL – the local scholarships scheme – that allows more Paraguayans to access the UK’s world-class higher education.

The Chevening scholarships allow outstanding young Paraguayans to carry out postgraduate studies at British universities and courses of their choice with all expenses covered.

Applications to study during 2010/2021 are open until 5 November 2019 at chevening.org/apply
