MATI Partners with British High Commission to Provide Travel & Tourism Scholarships

Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI) and the British High Commission have signed the MoU of ‘Chevening / Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI) Scholarships’.

The Chevening Scholarships programme is the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, in which scholarships are awarded to those individuals with strong academic backgrounds and leadership skills.

MATI is sponsoring the Chevening Scholarships for Maldivian students who wish to study for a one-year Master’s degree in a Travel and Tourism related programme at any accredited university in the UK. The partnership is set to cover two scholarships over the course of two academic years – 2022/23 and 2023/24.

The signing took place on 28 February 2022 at Maagiri Hotel. The British High Commissioner to Maldives, HE Caron Röhsler signed on behalf of the British High Commission and the Secretary General, Mr. Ahmed Nazeer signed on behalf of MATI.

As the applications open later this year, students can apply for the scholarship here.
