11 Pakistanis get Chevening scholarship


ISLAMABAD: The British Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan Peter Tibber on Thursday distributed certificates among eleven Pakistani nationals who have been awarded Chevening scholarships for study in the UK.

The British Chevening Scholarship Programme is a dynamic professional development opportunity, designed to identify and support the leaders of next generation across the globe. The scholars will study topics including law and human rights, economics, finance and journalism.

“The Chevening programme is a testament of close ties between the UK and Pakistan in the field of education. I congratulate this year’s Chevening scholars for their remarkable achievement. I believe that both the countries benefit from the sharing of ideas and learning that results from the Chevening programme,” said Peter.

One of the scholars, who is from South Waziristan and will be studying Law and Human Rights under the programme, said “Human rights is a growing social problem in South Waziristan and I hope my studies will help me serve the masses and make themaware them of their fundamental rights.
