Chevening Alumni Brunei AGM (Updated)

by Reedz on September 3, 2011


A few days ago, the Chevening Alumni Association of Brunei Darussalam held its AGM cum sungkai function at the Royal Brunei Polo Club in Jerudong. The turnout was modest due to the fact that most of the members had other prior engagements.

I learnt during this event that to date there are currently over 30 Chevening Alumni in Brunei Darussalam, all from different disciplines and all contributing in their own way and leading activities towards the national development goals.

The Queen Elizabeth II Chevening Scholarships began in Brunei Darussalam in 1998 when they were formally announced during the State Visit of Her Majesty The Queen that year. Hence the rare honor of attaching Her Majesty’s name to the awards. Chevening scholarships take their name from Chevening House, the official country residence of the Foreign Secretary near Sevenoaks in Kent.

In Brunei Darussalam, various organisations have co-sponsored the scheme, namely CfBT Education Services, Cable & Wireless, MBDA, HSBC, BSP, BLNG, BAE Systems and ASEM. Previous and current Bruneian recipients of the Chevening Scholarships are:

On paper, its an impressive list of individuals, but sadly, we are yet to make an impact as a collective. I hope other members will find some time to contribute to the association because otherwise, the CAB will suffer a similar fate to countless many other volunteer organizations which exist only in the ROS records.
