The Scholarships offer the opportunity to study for a one-year Master’s degree at any of the UK’s leading universities

Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations.

The Scholarships offer the opportunity to study for a one-year Master’s degree at any of the UK’s leading universities, and are awarded to outstanding established or emerging leaders across a wide range of fields including economics, business administration, international politics including human rights, engineering/science and technology and project and programme management linked to infrastructure development.

The programme also provides a unique opportunity for leaders of the future to build a global network of continuing professional significance and also to establish social, cultural, academic or commercial partnerships with the UK.

The Chevening programme was established in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international scheme. Chevening Scholars come from more than 150 countries and territories worldwide. There are over 43,000 Chevening alumni around the world who together comprise an influential and highly regarded global network.

Applications for a Chevening Scholarship must be submitted online at the Chevening website and the deadline for receipt of applications is 15 November at 23.59 GMT. Applications received after this date will not be processed.
