Selected scholars from Honduras were given an official send-off, ahead of their departure to the UK by the British Ambassador to Honduras, Thomas Carter.

Chevening Scholars

The UK is supporting three Honduran scholars to study a one-year Master’s degree in the UK, funded by the UK Government’s prestigious Chevening Scholarship programme. The scholars who are off to study at some of the best universities in the world are:

  • Sofía Alejandra Maradiaga, MSc Behavioural and Economic Science in University of Warwick

  • Jose Daniel Madrigal Cerrato, MSc Urbanisation and Development in London School of Economics and Political Science

  • Jose Menelio Bardales Urbina, MSc Structural Engineering in University of Birmingham

Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The scholarships support study at UK universities – one-year master’s degrees – for individuals with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision-makers, and opinion formers.

To mark the farewell event, the British Ambassador to Honduras, Thomas Carter, said:

I am delighted to announce that this year we will be sending three Hondurans to study at some of the best universities in the world, meaning the number of Chevening Scholars in Honduras continues to grow. There are over 50,000 Chevening alumni around the world. I am confident that these scholars will have an enjoyable and rewarding experience and return to contribute to a bright and prosperous future for Honduras.

The application window for the 2020/2021 Chevening Scholarships is now open and applications can be submitted through the online application system until 5 November 2019. For more details, please visit the Chevening website
