What is the Chevening Scholarship Scheme?

Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The programme makes awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study postgraduate courses- mainly Masters- at universities across the UK.

Chevening Scholars come from over 120 countries worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU), and over 600 Scholarships will be awarded this year. There are over 42,000 Chevening alumni around the world who together comprise an influential and highly regarded global network.
