Ambassador Ramin Navai offered a reception at the Embassy Residence to bid farewell to the Paraguayan Chevening scholars.
The British Ambassador to Paraguay, Ramin Navai, hosted a reception on Thursday 9 September to bid farewell to the 2021/2022 cohort of Paraguayan Chevening scholars. After a selection process that started in August 2020, the future leaders and decision makers of Paraguay will head to the UK ready to start their masters’ degrees studies for the 2021-22 period.
The scholars will pursue a wide range of areas of studies, from neuroscience and neuropsychology to water resources management and cybersecurity. Some of their destinations include the University of Oxford in England, Cardiff University in Wales and the University of Glasgow in Scotland.
Chevening in Paraguay
Since the reopening of the Embassy in 2013, the number of scholars has increased thanks to agreements with partners such as BECAL – the local scholarships scheme – that allows more Paraguayans from all over the country to access the UK’s world-class higher education.
With this new cohort of 13 students, the number Chevening Alumni from Paraguay will rise to 157 in total. There Paraguayan professionals receive the best education in some of the UK’s finest higher education programmes.
