The Chevening Secretariat is accepting applications for 2017/2018 Chevening Scholarships from 8 August to 8 November 2016.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds. The scholarship offers financial support to study for a master’s degree at any UK university and the opportunity to become part of an influential global network of 46,000 alumni. Visit Chevening website to start preparing your application.
There are approximately 1,500 Chevening Scholarships on offer globally for the 2017/2018 academic cycle. These scholarships represent a significant investment from the UK government to develop the next cohort of global leaders.
Chevening Secretariat Director, Michael Scott-Kline, said:
Those who step forward to apply for a Chevening Scholarship are already demonstrating the kind of ambitious forward-thinking that typifies Chevening Scholars.
The potential rewards for applying are unquantifiable. Not only do scholars receive a first-rate UK education which can open doors in their respective careers, they also join a strong global network — a network they will draw on and contribute to for the rest of their lives.
It is my pleasure to announce the opening of the 2017/2018 competition for Chevening Scholarships. Applying – or encouraging a friend to apply – may turn out to be the best decision you ever make. Everyone who has ever benefitted from being a Chevening Scholar has one thing in common — they had the ambition to simply apply.
Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The scholarships support study at UK universities – mostly one year master’s degrees – for individuals with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision-makers, and opinion formers.
Chevening began in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international awards scheme. Chevening Scholars come from over 160 countries and territories worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU), and 1,500 scholarships were awarded in 2016/2017. There are over 46,000 Chevening Alumni around the world who comprise an influential and highly regarded global network.
