Three Montserratians Receive 2018 Chevening Scholarships
The Governor’s Office is pleased to announce that Jamiel Melissa Greenaway, Tanisha Christopher and Deidre Allen have been awarded the prestigious Chevening Scholarship for the 2018/19 academic year.
Miss Greenaway of the Attorney General’s Chambers will be studying for a LLM in Banking and Finance Law at Queen Mary University of London.
Ms Christopher of ZJB Radio will be studying for a MA in Global Communication and Development at Loughborough University in London.
Ms Allen who is based at Environmental Health will be completing a MSc in International Development – Envirionment Climate Change and Development at the University of Manchester.
His Excellency the Governor, Andrew Pearce, who met all three scholars at the Governor’s Office earlier today said: “I’d like to offer warm congratulations to Jamile, Tanisha and Deidre on being awarded the Chevening Scholarship this year. This island has been sending scholars to the UK to study since the 80s and this is the first time we have received three in one year. Montserrat has a lot to offer, including its bright and talented young people and the three of you are evidence of that that legacy. You all do your family, friends and the rest of the country proud. Congrats once again.”
The Chevening Scholarship scheme is the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. They are geared to students with at least first degrees enabling them to study for Masters programmes or equivalent and who show the potential to become future leaders and decision makers in their home countries.
Ms Greenaway, Ms Christopher and Ms Allen leave Montserrat in September to begin their scholarships.
