HE Dr. Fares Braizat, Chairman of the JCAA Board, highlighted collaboration among the members to create meaningful change, underlining ongoing efforts to engage every alumnus and harness their skills, knowledge and resources to enhance the development of the country and foster the bilateral relations between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the United Kingdom.

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of key association strategy highlights by Mr. Nart Dohjoka, a distinguished board member. His insights showcased the JCAA dedication to growth and impact-oriented future planning.

The Chevening Alumni Association is a non-profit Jordanian association that aims to work with Chevening scholarship graduates after their return to Jordan, through membership, networking, and engagement in policy-making sessions to leverage the diverse expertise of Chevening alumni, fostering a robust network of leaders committed to advancing Jordan's prosperity and welfare.
The association’s mission is to empower and nurture visionary leaders for a better Jordan.
It is worth mentioning that Chevening is the UK government’s international scholarships and fellowships programme. Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and partner organisations. It aims to empower outstanding emerging leaders from around the world to study for a one-year master's degree in the United Kingdom. Over 600 individuals from Jordan and more than 55,000 individuals globally have been awarded this prestigious scholarship.

This year the UK marked the 40th Anniversary of Chevening scholarships and fellowships programme.

It has been running in Jordan for 38 years, as the first Jordanian cohort departed in 1985 demonstrating our long term commitment towards developing future leaders.
