The British Embassy in Harare has awarded eighteen outstanding Zimbabweans the prestigious Chevening Scholarship funded by the British Government to pursue Masters Degree studies in the United Kingdom.

Ambassador Catriona Laing said: "The potential rewards of being a Chevening scholar are unquantifiable. Not only do scholars receive a first-rate UK education which can open doors in their respective careers, they also join a strong global network - a network they will draw on and contribute to for the rest of their lives.

Chevening scholars share the best their country has to offer with those they meet in the UK, and then share the best the UK has to offer when they return home. For this reason, Chevening scholars play an important role in building bridges between the UK and Zimbabwe.

Recent scholars have taken in breath-taking views of the UK, experienced Britain's heritage and history discussed international policy at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and interacted with high profile academics, politicians, and even royals at a range of academic, cultural, and social events. So whether they're >inside a lecture theatre or not, scholars are constantly learning.

The eighteen scholars who have been awarded scholarships are:

Tendai Muchada - MA Governance & Development
Nqobani Dube - MA Development & Human Rights
Elizabeth Mangeje - LLM in International Human Rights Law
Kudakwashe Magura - MSC Engineering Management
Shamiso Fernando - MPH Public Health
