Applications for 2014-2015 Chevening Scholarships in Syria are now open and will close 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:

  • Conflict Resolution and Peace building
  • Democracy, Law and Human Rights
  • Governance and Media
  • Economic Development
  • Urban development and reconstruction

A Chevening Scholarship in Syria 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 the global MBA cap of £12k).

Do you have the potential to be a future leader and a desire to study in the UK? If you would like to enhance your leadership skills and become part of the growing Chevening network, read about how to apply for a Chevening Scholarship in Syria.
