Британска Амбасада у Београду почела је припреме за аплицирање кандидата за добијање Чивнинг (Chevening)стипендије за наредну годину.
The UK's Chevening Scholarship scheme has opened for applications for the academic year. Chevening is the UK government's global scholarship scheme, funded mainly by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and partner organisations. It targets future leaders in around 100 countries across the world, enabling talented young people to study at the UK's world-class universities, and build networks with fellow future leaders from across the globe.
Competition for places on the Chevening scheme is intense, but this year the UK Treasury has announced a significant increase in the number of places for many countries, including Serbia, so there are more opportunities for young leaders to come to the UK and further their academic study.
If you are a young professional with at least two years of work experience (it can be volunteer work or other relevant professional experience) and  have the ambition and leadership potential to be a Chevening scholar, or you know someone who you think fits the bill, then please consider applying, or passing this on to them as appropriate. For this academic year, the priority areas for study are: Human and Minority Rights, Public Administration Reform, Legal System Reform, Economics and Competition Reform, and Conflict prevention and post-conflict reconciliation - and we will consider all applications that are relevant to these areas - it is up to candidates to show how their chosen course of study will help make a difference in these fields.
The application process for academic year 2015/16 will open on 1 August
and close on 15 November.
All additional information can be found at http://www.chevening.org/serbia/ including any enquiries you might have.
The British Embassy in Belgrade will hold open events in September and October, where prospective candidates can ask more questions, with more details to come after the summer break.
