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 at universities in the UK.

The Scholarships not only offer financial support to study for a Master’s degree at the UK’s leading universities, but the opportunity to become part of an influential and highly regarded global network.

A Chevening Scholarship in Kyrgyzstan 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 full tuition fees. Please note that a global tuition fee cap of £12,000 will apply for MBA courses, and successful scholars wishing to study an MBA will be expected to fund the remainder of the tuition fee costs. Applicants from Kyrgyzstan are encouraged to apply for a wide range of subject areas, however, applications in the following fields are particularly welcomed:

  • Public administration
  • Conflict management
  • Security
  • Mining-related studies, such as geology or engineering
