Ambassador Bridget Brind lauded the awardees and noted that the Chevening Scholarship Scheme was celebrating its 40th anniversary. This year's cohort stands as a significant achievement for the Kingdom, as one of its students secured the prestigious Chevening Fellowship – an honor bestowed upon only three students globally.

To be eligible for this accolade, applicants are required to demonstrate leadership potential and possess a minimum of two years of professional work experience.

This year's scholars will cover an array of fields, including but not limited to Innovation and Entrepreneurship, International Development, Biomedical Engineering, Business, Sustainable Energy, and International Law. The overarching goal is to equip these scholars with the requisite expertise to make meaningful contributions upon their return to Jordan.

As per a statement, the selection process for the Chevening Program is notably competitive, necessitating candidates to showcase leadership promise and preparedness to excel within their chosen domains. The program actively encourages individuals with ambitious aspirations of making an impact as future leaders to submit their applications.
