Uganda last year failed to fill the scholarships offered by the United Kingdom (UK) under the Chevening Scholarship scheme.
The scheme is for studies in the UK leading to post-graduate qualifications.
Applicants must have obtained good bachelor’s degrees and must not be older that 35 years, among other requirements.
The second secretary at the British High Commission, John Hamilton, said recently that out of the five scholarships offered to Uganda in the 2005/06 academic year Uganda fell short of meeting its quarter by two applicants. Hamilton was speaking during the annual general meeting of the Uganda British alumni Association (UBAA) at Sheraton Hotel.
He urged members of the UBAA to publicise the scheme so that the right candidates apply for it in future. He said UBAA should also explain to the public the advantages of getting educated in Britain. Dr Samson Kirinde was elected in absentia, as the association’s new chairperson. Others elected were Radio One proprietor Maria Kiwanuka (vice- Chairperson), former New Vision employee Lydia Mirembe (secretary), Fredrick Mukungu (vice- secretary), Laban Jjemba (treasurer), and Parliament spokesperson Hellen Kaweesa (mobiliser).
