The British Ambassador to Costa Rica and Nicaragua hosted a joint farewell event for scholars.
On 17 September, the British Ambassador to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Ross Denny, hosted a virtual farewell event for Chevening scholars selected to study a one-year Masters in the United Kingdom.
Ambassador Denny congratulated the six scholars, three from Costa Rica and three from Nicaragua, for having been selected for this prestigious award. He remarked that although the circumstances had prevented them from starting their courses physically in the United Kingdom, that UK universities’ ability to adapt quickly to the current context meant that they were all able to begin their studies remotely. Ambassador Denny also encouraged them to make the most of the virtual activities that would be organised by different university groups.
This year, the following scholars will be doing their Masters in the UK:
Jose Rojas (Costa Rica), International Development, University of Bristol
Maria Fernanda Cruz (Costa Rica), Corruption and Governance, University of Sussex
Mónica Hildago (Costa Rica), Behaviour Change, UCL
Alejandra Vijil (Nicaragua), Education (Psychology and Education), London School of Economics and Political Science
Amanda Martinez (Nicaragua), Development Management, London School of Economics and Political Science
Ludwing Moncada (Nicaragua), Crime Science, UCL
