March 9 1998

The British Embassy has recently completed the selection process for the 1998/99 Chevening Scholarships Scheme. This year around 200 applications were received, and 12 candidates were successful in the competition. Around half the successful candidates are medical specialists and a number of the best individuals are women.
Mr. James Downer, Second Secretary at the British Embassy said, “we look for successful young professionals in all fields.” He expressed his hope that next year there will be “more applications from people working in the judicial/legal sector and professionals in public administration and development.”
