The British Ambassador to Liberia, David Belgrove, will give a lecture on the Chevening Scholarships, the UK Government’s global scholarship program, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organizations. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, September 28, at 2:30 p.m., in the auditorium of the Capitol Hill campus of the University of Liberia.
The program offers awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study for a master’s degree in any subject at any UK university.
A Chevening Scholarship normally covers university tuition fees, a monthly stipend, travel costs to and from the UK, an arrival allowance, a homeward departure allowance, the cost of one visa application, and a travel grant to attend Chevening events in the UK.
Ambassador Belgrove joined the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) in 1982 and has served in the Czech Republic, Kuwait, India, Canada, Afghanistan, Liberia and Sudan.
Students of the University of Liberia, as well as members of the faculty and others, are encouraged to attend this event.
The event will be moderated by Atty. Norris Tweah, Vice President for UL Relations, a press release said.
