Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, such as ANII here in Uruguay. The programme makes awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study one year postgraduate courses at universities in the UK.
Chevening/ANII scholarships will be awarded to study a Master’s degree in the United Kingdom in any area. The scholarships make awards to outstanding Uruguayan scholars with potential to rise to positions of leadership and influence. New applicants will need to demonstrate that they possess the personal, intellectual and interpersonal attributes reflecting this potential.
Each award will provide full payment of academic tuition fees, including examination and thesis costs, a monthly stipend for living expenses sufficient for a single student, an allowance package and a return airfare.
