The Governor’s Office announced on Friday that Miss Amuelle Kirnon of the Bank of Montserrat and Dr. Ingrid Buffonge of Glendon Hospital have been awarded prestigious Chevening Scholarships for the 2017/18 academic year.

Miss Kirnon will study for a Master of Science (MSc) in Occupational and Organisational Psychology at the University of Surrey commencing in September.

The release from the Governor’s office reported Miss Kirnon as saying: “I am very thrilled and excited to be afforded the opportunity to pursue an area which will aid in the social and economic development in Montserrat. I have a keen interest in the productivity within organisations and the integral role employee relations play in shaping the image and contributing to the overall success of an organisation. My journey in becoming a Chevening Scholar has now begun and I am extremely enthusiastic about beginning classes in September.”

Dr. Buffonge, a 2014 elected Member of Parliament, will study for a Master of Science (MSc) in Critical Care at Queen Mary University commencing also in September of this year. The doctor reportedly said: “I am passionate about the provision of good quality healthcare on Montserrat. I am keen to further contribute to Montserrat by advancing my knowledge in Critical Care, an area I’ve long advocated for. Therefore, I am really pleased that I have been awarded this year’s Chevening Scholarship and now have the opportunity to expand my knowledge in this area.”

The Chevening Scholarship scheme is the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. They are geared to students with at least first degrees enabling them to study for Masters programmes or equivalent and who show the potential to become future leaders and decision makers in their home countries.

The release advised that “as Miss Kirnon and Dr. Buffonge leave at the start of their scholarships, Miss Thandie Williams and Miss Cilma Wade, last year’s Chevening Scholarship recipients, will be making their way back to Montserrat.”
