The alliance is based on the mutual aim of supporting outstanding individuals to build their dream careers and contribute to the development of Honduras.
Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme that aims to developing global leaders through awarding scholarships to outstanding emerging leaders, in order for them to pursue a one-year Master’s degree at any UK university.
With the support of the Honduran Government, Chevening would be able to grant at least three additional scholarships for Hondurans wanting to study in the UK, allowing participants to cover associated costs to their studies.
This is the first time Scholarships 20/20 collaborates with such organization in the UK. The scheme is due to start this year and candidates should apply through the Chevening system.
The partnership will support scholars who pursue master’s degrees in the following areas applicable under the Chevening scheme:
- tourism, textile & apparel,
- light manufacturing, agribusiness,
- business process outsourcing -information technology outsourcing,
- health specializations
Speaking about the Chevening – Scholarships 20/20 partnership, The Presidential Delegate, Mr. Erasmo Portillo said:
We are transforming our country by spurring higher education and generating opportunities for Hondurans to access scholarships and get a specialization abroad. Our partnership with Chevening is based on the mutual aim of supporting outstanding individuals on their journey to greatness. I encourage all suitable candidates to apply for this amazing opportunity through the Chevening website.
