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. The priority areas for this year’s Chevening Scholarship Programme in Ecuador are:

•Human Rights, Governance and Democracy

•Media and Journalism


•International Trade and Investment related areas

•International Relations and Diplomacy

•Sustainable Development and Climate Change

Last year, two Chevening Scholars from Ecuador studied in the UK. Daniela Carrión and Analiz Vergara both studied for an MSc in Environment and Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science. For more information about their time in the UK please click here.

A Chevening Scholarship in Ecuador 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 tuition fees. Tuition fee payments have an upper limit of £12,000 in all countries. You will be expected to fund any difference above this sum.
