Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarships programme. Established in 1983, these scholarships support study at UK universities – mostly one-year Masters’ degrees – for students with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision-makers and opinion formers.

The Scholarships not only offer financial support, but the opportunity to become part of an influential and highly regarded global network that unites over 42,000 alumni around the world.

Priority fields for 2015-2016

We accept applications from a wide range of subject areas, however, we particularly welcome applications in the following fields:

  • administrative, electoral, constitutional and judicial reform within the framework of closer integration with the EU
  • economic reform, improvement of the business climate
  • energy sector reform, including energy efficiency and environmental management
  • protection of media freedoms and minority rights
  • tackling regional and global security threats

What does it cover?

A Chevening Scholarship in Ukraine 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 up to £12,000. If the tuition fees of your chosen course exceed this amount, please note that you may be required to supplement the balance of your award.

Chevening does not pay for costs associated with English language tests.
