Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the British Ambassador hosted a virtual event for those who were awarded Chevening Scholarships.

Every year, a number of Chevening Scholarships are awarded to students from Argentina with outstanding academic performance and leadership qualities, allowing them full funding to undertake postgraduate studies in universities in the UK.

Ambassador Mark Kent bid farewell to the group through a virtual meeting, in the aims of wishing a safe and successful trip to the scholarship holders. A face-to-face event is usually hosted, but due to COVID-19, the British Ambassador could not welcome the group of young Argentines at his Residence.
