Eligibility: You should have or expect to obtain a first degree with at least Upper Second Honours, and can demonstrate drive and determination, ambition and leadership and a strong personality. Candidates with a Lower Second degree but with impressive career achievements may also apply. Most successful candidates will be aged between 25 and 40.

Value and conditions: Chevening Scholarships are not course or institution specific. You can apply for full-time study at any British university in your chosen area of study. Advice on admission to universities and available courses can be obtained from www.educationUK.org.my. The full cost of tuition fees is covered.

However, for MBA and other business school programmes, the scholarship covering fees is capped at ?14,400 (RM100,656) and candidates have to bear the difference themselves.

Students will also get a monthly living allowance for the duration of the scholarship and modest allowances to cover books and warm clothing. They will also get a return airfare to the UK.

How To Apply: Applications for the 2004 Chevening Scholarships are now closed. The next recruitment round in September and October 2004 will be for courses beginning in September/October 2005.

Although I'm a chemical engineer, most of my research and participation are concentrated in the biomolecular@biotech and biomedical applications. As for what I know, I think US has the greatest capital thats being put down for biotech advances and research.

Take for example the Lincoln Institute in MIT, their research in biosensors and nanobiotechnology itself is like 20 years ahead of the current time. Well, you may ask if its 20 years ahead why are we not seeing ayn of this gadgetry in the market. The think about the US is most of their high tech research are done under the supervisory of the intelligence service thats CIA. And most of thier achievements are published in scientific papers but not implemented comercially. So thats why we dont see any of these advancements...if you're lucky you might come across reading about it.

I personally think that the best place to do any kind of studies in Biotech would the US. Not to say their the best, but the just have a lot fund to seized oppertunity. That's why a lot of foreign researcher comes to the US whether they conduct thier research wiithout worrying about the funds. And there's like super abundance of Uni's offering biotech right now...i8ts simply the next big thing after the so called glorious information age.
