Kwara State Joins Chevening And UK To Explore Scholarship For Youths

Date: 2022-09-23

Hundreds of young people have attended a one-day seminar organised by the British High Commission, Chevening, and the Kwara State Government to encourage as many qualified Kwarans as possible to apply for the Chevening Scholarships.

Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq commended the British High Commission and Chevening for extending the opportunities to Kwara youths.

The Governor said his administration would continue to invest in deepening life opportunities for Kwarans through qualitative education.

“It is my pleasure to appreciate the organisers of the programme, Chevening Scholarship, and the Government of the United Kingdom, for extending the opportunity to Kwara. Your records of achievements spanning almost four decades have brought exceptional professionals from around the world to study in the United Kingdom through scholarship and fellowship”, the Governor said at the seminar in Ilorin, the state capital.

Human Development

Governor AbdulRazaq said the current administration has contributed immensely to human capital development in the state and was willing to partner with the organisation.

“For instance, the Government of Kwara State, in its effort at securing and investing in the next generation, has engaged public and private sector leaders, thinkers, and relevant stakeholders through interactive sessions, summits, and workshops of this nature to explore the future of education as central to the state government’s agenda for growth and development,” he said.

Governor Abdulrazaq was represented at the workshop by the State Commissioner for Tertiary Education Science and Technology, Dr. Afeez Alabi Abolore.

Kwara State Commissioner for Youth Development, Honourable Adamu Bake, said the present administration was committed to wealth creation through capacity building, inclusion, and empowerment for young people to positively engage them.

“To achieve youth development in all ramifications, young people also need to be responsive and do everything possible to explore this opportunity (of scholarship) to enrich their professional and academic networks for national and international benefits,” she said.

Senior Political Adviser to British High Commission, Abuja, Mr. Wale Adebajo, said the Chevening scholarship offers a unique opportunity for the youth to achieve their professional goals and gain life experience.

Fully Funded Scholarship

Programme Officer for Chevening, Mrs. Oluwafunmilayo Ladejo, said the Chevening scholarship was fully funded by the Government of the United Kingdom.

She said about 30 million naira would be expended on each of the successful applicants, covering tuition fees, visas, tickets, living allowances, economic grants, and accommodation, among others.

She explained that the Chevening scholarship was designed to develop international leadership and expertise.

Mrs. Ladejo stated that over 50,000 alumni of Chevening are doing great in their various endeavors.

She advised the participants to take advantage of the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and widen their international collections.
