CHEVENING Scholarship

About:
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to outstanding emerging leaders to pursue a one-year master’s at any UK university. The scholarship programme provides a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

A Chevening Scholarship offers financial support along with the opportunity to become part of the highly regarded and influential Chevening global network.

Applicants can choose any course of study at any UK higher education institution. Applications for 2018/2019 scholarships will open in August 2017.

Eligibility:

  1. Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country
  2. Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended
  3. Have an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry to a postgraduate programme at a UK university. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK.
  4. Have at least two years’ work experience (this may be up to five years for fellowship programmes, please refer to your country page for further details)
  5. Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 13 July 2017
  6. Meet the Chevening English language requirement by 13 July 2017

Employees, former employees, or relatives of an employee (since July 2014) of Chevening Partner organisations are eligible to apply, but cannot receive a Chevening/Partner Award from the organisation for which they work, previously worked, or are affiliated with through relatives.
