Johannesburg - The United Kingdom announced an increase in funding allocated to its Chevening scholarship programme in South Africa, as well as a new scholarship on Tuesday.

"I am delighted to announce additional funding for the UK's Chevening Scholarship Programme in South Africa," UK Minister for Africa Mark Simmonds said in Johannesburg.

Under a new partnership with education funder Canon Collins Trust, the government would co-fund six scholarships.

"This, and other planned increases in the funding we provide for Chevening in South Africa, will mean an uplift of over 25% in the number of scholarships available to young South Africans."

A new Bloodhound scholarship had also been created.

It would be administered by Chevening and would focus on the science, technical, engineering and maths sectors.
