DOES climate change get your heart racing?
If yes, then why not try for a scholarship to pursue that subject at a British university under the Chevening Scholarship programme?
Chevening Scholarships are fully funded awards that cover university tuition fees, a monthly living allowance and return airfare to Britain.
Applications for the 2007/2008 academic year are now open.
While Chevening Scholarships are for full-time study in any subject area, this year, applications for courses on climate change are particularly welcomed.
Scholarships are now awarded only for one-year Masters degrees or for short postgraduate courses at a British university of the students' choice. Chevening does not cover professional courses and very rarely funds part-time or distance learning UK postgraduate programmes.
There are also a number of Partnership Awards available under the Chevening programme, including a Masters award relevant to the oil/gas industry with Hess Oil & Gas and two Masters awards, one in either Banking/Finance and one in the area of Environment, with HSBC.
Other partnership awards are with the Universities of Abertay Dundee, Nottingham and Strathclyde.
The deadlines for applications are Oct 31 for the general public and Oct 13 for Government servants.
Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu in early 2007.
A total of 1,091 Malaysians have studied or are currently studying in Britain under the Chevening Scholarship Programme.
