Chevening change makers – Celebrating our alumni award winners
The British Council Education UK Alumni Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals who have studied in the UK within the last 10 years and have used their UK education to soar as professionals, entrepreneurs or in having a social impact.
The inaugural awards were held in 2015, covering just three countries. Chevening was delighted to have three finalists from China and India. This year, the awards were spread over 10 countries and, as always, Chevening has multiplied its status! We are proud to announce that out of the thousands who either entered or were nominated for the awards, Chevening Alumni held 15 finalist spots and we have an incredible five winners.
We can be sure to beat this new benchmark next year, but for now, join us as we congratulate and honour the winners and finalists. It could be you next year!
