Dear Colleague


British Chevening Scholarships 2007/2008

I would like to draw your attention to the British Chevening Scholarships offered every year by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), to enable promising young people in Israel to spend between three and twelve months in Britain for post graduate study or research. The British Council administers these funding schemes on behalf of the British Embassy in Israel.

Candidates interested in applying should contact our Scholarships Department at the address below, or access our website for application forms, guidelines and further information.

If you have a website, please post this information there with a link to our site.      

All fields of study are considered, but priority is given to subject areas related to politics and government, conflict prevention, regional and economic development, law and human rights, environment, media, business and economics, information technology and applied science.

We are now inviting applications for the academic year 2007/8.  The FCO is particularly interested in applicants who, in addition to academic excellence, show leadership potential, strong motivation, good communication skills and an interest in contributing to Israeli society.

If you would like copies of our information sheet for distribution or to display on your notice boards, please contact us and we will be happy to send some to you.

The deadline for submitting completed applications is 18 December 2006

Yours sincerely


Claire Levy
