UK Amb. Morris Lauds 4 Chevening Fellows

British Ambassador to Seoul Warwick Morris hosted a small gathering at 5 p.m. on Dec. 14, 2005 to mark the departure for the UK by four Korean Chevening Fellows.

2006 will be the first year of the Chevening Fellowship scheme. International competition for places on the scheme has been fierce and the four will join other high-flying young professionals from around the world on their specially designed courses.

The British Government's Chevening scheme has a global reputation for attracting applications from some of the brightest, most ambitious and promising young people from all around the world.

Thousands of young people, including some 700 Koreans, have benefited from scholarships to engage in post-graduate study in the UK.

After a pilot last year, 2006 will see the launch of a new Chevening Fellowships scheme. Fellowships are very different from the standard Chevening scholarships, as they focus on mid-career professionals and key areas of interest to the UK.

Courses are specially designed and cater for just 10 or 12 fellows on each course. Places on the Fellowships are available by nomination only.

Despite these differences, both Chevening schemes are clearly linked by the quality of individuals they aim to attract.

Tom Warwick, head of press and public affairs at the British Embassy, said: "The Chevening brand is internationally respected and Chevening alumni have a reputation as tomorrow's leaders, opinion-formers and decision makers. We are delighted that four Korean professionals have been awarded places on the first courses in the new Chevening Fellowship scheme — I am sure that they will excel in their chosen fields and help to further strengthen the excellent relations between the UK and Korea."

In January 2006 the four Koreans will travel to the UK to participate in four new Chevening Fellowship courses.

The Fellows are:

Ms Jung Boreum (Korea Fair Trade Commission) — Government Economic Reform and Regulation course at the University of Bradford

Mr Choi Hansoo (People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy) — Responsible Business course at the University of Nottingham.

Mr Choi Dae-sik (Korea National Oil Corporation) — The Economics of Energy course at the University of Reading

Mr Seungmin Park (Korea Gas Corporation) — More Efficient Energy Consumption course at De Montford University (Leicester)
