Applications for 2014/15 Chevening Scholarships in Lebanon are now open and will close on 8 November 2013.

The Scholarships not only offer financial support to study for a Master’s degree at the UK’s leading universities, but the opportunity to become part of an influential and highly regarded global network.

We aim to attract talented professionals who are potential future leaders, decision- makers and opinion formers. We accept applications from a wide range of subject areas, however, we particularly welcome applications in the following fields:

  • Public administration (including public financial management)
  • Energy sector
  • Democracy, Law and Human Rights
  • Media

A Chevening Scholarship in Lebanon includes: a monthly stipend, travel to and from your country via an approved route, an arrival and excess baggage allowance, a thesis or dissertation grant, the cost of an entry clearance visa and full tuition fees (with the exception of MBAs which have a global Chevening cap of £12k).

Last year, 5 Chevening Scholars from Lebanon studied in the UK. Rita Yarred a Chevening alumnus said of her time at King’s College London, ‘I have now completed my MA in Conflict Security and Development at KCL and it feels great! This has been a once in a lifetime opportunity and I would advise anyone who is fortunate enough to be granted the Chevening scholarship to grab hold of it with both hands!’
