GRE is an acronym for Graduate Record Examination. It is a well standardized academic test, used as an admission criteria for postgraduate schools. GRE is a requirement for (post) graduate entry, at Masters or Doctoral (Ph.D) study in the U.S, Canada, Europe and is increasingly being adopted in Asia-pacific and Africa, hopefully, in Nigeria soon.
It was an evening of excitement and celebration as successful as 2016/17 Chevening awardees from Nigeria mingle with the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, and past Chevening Scholars from Nigeria.
“I think it’s a global opportunity to meet with other scholars and to be a part of the alumni, and above all to be able to get the investment where you can come back and develop Nigeria as a whole, so, it’s been a fantastic opportunity, and I am happy to be privileged to be a part of the global network,” she said excitedly.
This year, Nigeria had the most applications for Chevening scholarship, about 4000. The High Commissioner also stressed on the importance of funding the programme so that more Nigerians could be beneficiaries as he called on the Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to encourage their best to apply for a Chevening scholarship, as the scholarship needs more people in the civil service and government sectors.
Big names such as Channels television’s John Momoh, Nigeria’s Comptroller general of Immigration and many more have benefitted from the awards, including the Ministry of Foreign affairs Permanent Secretary, Audu-Rafiu Olusola Enikanolaiye. Supporting the network would in turn not just aid social networking, but provide opportunities for future generations of Nigerians.

A year back in 2014, i started my scholarship search using google by typing full scholarship, and i was introduced to chevening. Personally, i chose chevening because of two reasons- the financial support, and its promising network opportunity with the influential global network of scholars. Chevening not only helps you financially but is committed to build lasting relationships between every scholar and alumni through its leadership and engagement events. I have experienced the power of networking during my past professional tenure.Recently, I attended the Chevening Orientation in London and met people with diverse thoughts, beliefs, and aspirations but everybody shared the common interest to contribute to the world to make it a better place. There can’t be a more ambient atmosphere for me than to be surrounded by like-minded people who believe in what I believe. It was one of the happiest days of my life!
