Chevening and Bank of Georgia
Bank of Georgia’s initiative is aimed at supporting graduate students from Georgia who wish to pursue their studies in the UK.
Bank of Georgia says: 'The Bank of Georgia has teamed up with Chevening, one of the most prestigious scholarship programmes in the world, to allow motivated and zealous individuals apply for one-year master’s degree studies. Bank of Georgia is the first Georgian company to cooperate with Chevening in a partnership and provide Georgian students an opportunity to get the best quality education in the world.
We believe that education is the key to building a better future for an individual and the country as a whole. By creating the partnership, Bank of Georgia makes it possible for twice as many Georgian students to continue their studies in the UK, across a wide range of fields.
Enhancing access to quality education is one of the top priorities on Bank of Georgia's sustainability agenda. There are several ways in which the bank is helping Georgian students to obtain high quality education both in Georgia and abroad. Partnering with Chevening has allowed us to select the best students and give them a chance to get the best quality education. The partnership enabled us to fulfil our sustainability promise in the best way possible and to truly contribute to a brighter future of a younger generation.'
