ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Virgin Islanders Ms Brittney S. Smith and Mr Hakim T. Creque, are recipients of the prestigious Chevening scholarship.

The duo were presented with their award at a ceremony held on August 28, 2018, by His Excellency the Governor Augustus J. U. Jaspert and Deputy Governor David D. Archer Jr, at the Governors’ residence in the presence of family, friends and Chevening Alumni.

The award offers full financial support for future leaders to study for any eligible master’s degree at any university in the United Kingdom.

Leadership & Growth   

Governor Jaspert in congratulating the recipients on their achievement said, “Chevening is not just about the opportunity to go and study in the UK, to go and experience the UK; it is not just an opportunity to go and develop further in terms of your particular areas of study but it is actually an opportunity to really demonstrate your growth into leadership and that is what Chevening values.  You are picked because you are the future leaders.”

Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds.

Both Ms Smith and Mr Creque will be pursuing master’s degrees in Law.
