Applications for Chevening Scholarships opened 3 August

The Chevening Secretariat is accepting applications for 2016/2017 Chevening Scholarships from 3 August until 3 November 2015.

Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with strong academic backgrounds who also have demonstrable leadership potential. The scholarship offers financial support to study for a Master’s degree at any of the UK’s leading universities and the opportunity to become part of an influential global network of 44,000 alumni.

There are approximately 1,500 Chevening Awards on offer worldwide for the 2016/2017 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:

A Chevening Scholarship is a mark of honour bestowed on individuals who have been identified as having the qualities to become highly influential global leaders. Not only do award recipients receive a first-rate UK education, through Chevening they join a vibrant community of Chevening Alumni, Foreign and Commonwealth Office staff, UK universities, and partner organisations. Chevening Award recipients will draw on and contribute to this community for the rest of their lives.
