The continuous partnership between the GUBA Enterprise and Chevening Scholarships to promote Ghanaian participation in the UK government’s learning initiative has been revamped. Applications for the Chevening Scholarships opened on Monday 7 August 2017, closing on Tuesday 7 November 2017.
Chevening Scholarships is the UK Government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders, with scholarships being awarded to outstanding emerging leaders to pursue a one-year Master’s degree at any UK university.
Chevening Scholarships offer a unique prospect for future leaders, decision makers and influencers to study abroad with financial support. Applicants from Ghana can choose any course of study, along with the opportunity to become part of the highly regarded and influential Chevening global network.
GUBA Enterprise will work to connect successful Ghanaian Scholars with high achievers within the UK and providing a necessary support system. GUBA will also help by promoting Chevening Scholarships to Ghanaians in the UK and influential networks in Ghana. The upcoming GUBA Careers will also connect the scholars with reputable businesses for further work experience. Speaking on the significance of the partnership, CEO of GUBA Enterprise – Mrs Dentaa Amoateng MBE adds:
“The welfare and advancement of Ghanaians is paramount to GUBA Enterprise. Thus, our collaboration with Chevening is to ensure that our high achievers have the same opportunity for excellence in the academic world. GUBA is connected to influential Ghanaians in the UK community and we will call on these people to bring this opportunity to the attention of family members back in Ghana by getting the message out in our mailing list, on social media, and on popular community radio and TV stations in the UK.”
