Scholarship title: Chevening Scholarships
Applicable Majors: All Fields of Study
Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The Scholarships support study at UK universities – mostly one-year Masters’ degrees – for individuals with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision makers and opinion formers.
The Chevening programme began in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international scheme. Chevening Scholars come from over 116 countries worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU), and 700 scholarships were awarded in 2011-2012. There are over 41,000 Chevening alumni around the world who together comprise an influential and highly regarded global network.
The name ‘Chevening’ comes from Chevening House in Sevenoaks, Kent – currently the joint official residence of the British Foreign Secretary and the Deputy Prime Minister.
Chevening Scholarships are for talented people who have been identified as potential future leaders across a wide range of fields; including politics, business, the media, civil society, religion, and academia. Applicants should be high calibre graduates with the personal, intellectual and interpersonal qualities necessary for leadership.
