The Chevening Scholarship winners for 2019 were announced yesterday by British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Mrs Janet Douglas.

This year’s awardees hail from Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Antigua and Barbuda. The three Barbadian Scholars are Deshon Griffith, Stefan Newton and Kamal Springer.

High Commissioner Douglas was particularly pleased to see large numbers of scholarships awarded to the region this year.

Mrs Douglas said, “We are delighted that once again Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean countries are the source of excellent candidates for the prestigious Chevening Scholarship scheme.

The UK remains committed to providing first-rate educational opportunities for future leaders across the Eastern Caribbean, and I encourage interested persons to step forward and apply. You may be sitting here before me next year, preparing to embark on the opportunity of a lifetime.”

The send-off event was also attended by Chevening alumni, well-wishers and a cross section of other students who are headed to the UK to commence studies in September 2019. The event provided a prime opportunity to benefit first-hand from presentations and top tips about student life in the UK.

Applications for 2020 to 2021 Chevening Scholarships supporting a taught Masters degree in any subject at any UK university can be made until 5 November 2019. Interested persons should apply at
