Three Montserratians have been awarded the prestigious Chevening Scholarship for the 2018/2019 academic year.

The Governor’s Office on Monday announced Ms. Jamiel Melissa Greenaway, Ms. Tanisha Christopher and Ms. Deidre Allen as this year’s recipients.

Ms. Greenaway of the Attorney General’s Chambers will be studying for a Master of Laws, LLM in Banking and Finance Law at Queen Mary University in London.

Ms. Christopher of ZJB Radio will be pursuing a Masters of Arts in Global Communications and Development at Loughborough University in London.

Ms. Allen who is based at Environmental Health will be completing a Master’s of Science in International Development with a focus on Environment Climate Change and Development at the University of Manchester.

His Excellency, the Governor Andrew Pearce has offered congratulations to all three scholars.

Governor Pearce says Montserrat has been sending scholars to the UK to study since the 1980’s and this is the first time the island has received three scholarships in one year.

The Governor says Montserrat has a lot to offer, including bright and talented young people and the three scholars are evidence of this legacy.

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 will leave Montserrat in September to begin their scholarship.
