A group of Kashmiri Chevening Scholars have launched ‘Chevening for Kashmir’ – a pilot mentorship programme to help Kashmiri applicants with Chevening Scholarship and university applications in the UK.

The mentorship programme is organised as part of the Project EduAccess, an upcoming non-profit initiative aimed at pioneering action towards improving inclusivity in higher education institutions by removing access-barriers for marginalized communities in South Asia.

Through this Mentorship programme, they seek to connect potential applicants from Kashmir with Kashmiris who have successfully completed the Chevening Scholarship and university admission processes.

All the mentors in the panel are current or past Chevening Scholars from Kashmir with diverse educational backgrounds including law, architecture, urban planning, engineering, and literature.

Through specially designed one-on-one mentorship sessions, these mentors will help mentees with scholarship and university application processes including drafting personal statements, statements of purpose, writing samples, CV, and other application documents.

In addition to the Chevening Scholarship, mentors will offer advice on other scholarships also such as The Commonwealth, Felix, Inlaks and other funding avenues.
