Applications for 2014/15 Chevening Scholarships, the prestigious global scholarship programme of the UK government, are now open.

The Scholarships, which are funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, operate in 118 countries worldwide, and this year will support over 600 established or emerging leaders. Awards are for a one-year Master’s degree, in any subject and at any of the UK’s leading universities.

The Scholarships aim to support UK foreign policy priorities by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision-makers around the world.

Chevening alumni have an excellent record of rising to positions of leadership across a wide range of fields: including politics, business, the media, civil society, religion, and academia. Some work as politicians, leading journalists, or policy advisers to NGOs and think tanks; others occupy senior positions in commercial organisations.

Applications for Chevening Scholarships must be submitted online at Chevening website. Applicants should read the online guidance and be able to demonstrate how they meet the Chevening selection criteria before submitting an application.

Further details are available at Turkey page of Chevening website. The deadline for applications is 1 November 2013.
