Thirteen of the sixteen Filipino scholars who comprise the 2020-2021 cohort of the UK’s Chevening Scholarship program recently visited Sentro Rizal London and paid a courtesy call on Ambassador Antonio M. Lagdameo.
During their call, Ambassador Lagdameo exhorted the scholars to return to the Philippines after their studies in the UK and make sure to give back to their communities.
Calling themselves the “pandemic Chevening batch,” these students were chosen by the UK government to pursue further studies at UK universities for their potential to become leaders and opinion shapers.
