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 are awarded to outstanding Scholars with leadership potential. Awards are typically for a one-year Master's degree.
Applicants should be high calibre graduates with the personal, intellectual and interpersonal qualities necessary for leadership. Chevening Scholars come from 120 countries worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU).
