Are you a future leader looking to study in the UK? Applications for 2014/15 Chevening Scholarships now open

Applications for 2014/15 Chevening Scholarships, the prestigious global scholarship programme of the UK government, are now open (From 1st September to 15th November 2013).

The Scholarships, which are funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, operate in 118 countries worldwide, and this year will support over 600 established or emerging leaders. Awards are typically for a one-year Master’s degree, in any subject and at any of the UK’s leading universities.

The Scholarships aim to support UK foreign policy priorities by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision-makers around the world. British Ambassador to Algeria, Martyn Roper, said: ‘Since I’ve been in Algeria, we’ve had some superb Chevening candidates, and I hope we’ll achieve the same high quality this year. It really is a unique opportunity for leaders of the future to build a global network, and make a big difference in their country of origin. If you’re talented, motivated, speak great English, already have some work experience, and want to study a masters degree in the UK, I strongly encourage you to apply”.

Chevening alumni have an excellent record of rising to positions of leadership across a wide range of fields: including politics, business, the media, civil society, religion, and academia. Some work as MPs, leading journalists, or policy advisers to NGOs and think tanks; others occupy senior positions in commercial organisations.
