Riyadh, July 4, SPA — Britain will spend SR2 million this year for the Chevening scholarship program for Saudi students, said British Ambassador to Saudi arabia Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles.

A press statement published today said the ambassador disclosed this while speaking at his residence while presenting certificates to six Saudi women and four men who have been chosen to do postgraduate studies in Britain; their subjects include education, engineering, communications, media and health management. The number of Saudis who have so far benefited from this program is 111.

&#34You will be a part of a group of 1,800 Chevening scholars from around the world attending universities across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom,&#34 he noted.

He pointed out that the recipients will not only study at UK universities but they will also have the opportunity to teach and exchange information with other students while there.
