Chevening encourages Palestinians to apply for full scholarship

Jerusalem24 – The UK government’s scholarship program, Chevening – which offers awards to study fully-funded master’s degree courses in the UK for one year – is now accepting applications for the 2023/2024 academic year.

The scholarship program is funded by the Commonwealth and developing offices and partner organizations and covers 160 countries across the world including Palestine. The prospective student can pursue a masters’ degree in any chosen field at any university in the UK.

Mai Miree, Chevening scholarships officer, tells Jerusalem24 that the deadline for applications for the 2023/2024 academic year is 1 November.

Miree adds that Palestinians who are interested in applying must hold a Palestinian ID. Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza, and Palestinians who hold Israeli IDs, are also eligible to apply.

Another requirement is having completed a bachelor’s degree or any undergraduate degree from an accredited university; a minimum of two years’ work experience; and good English language skills – which should help with writing and filling the application.

Successful candidates will then have to leave the UK for a minimum of two years after completing the program.

Due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the information session, scheduled for Monday, 12 September, was postponed until further notice.
