Applications now open for UK Government’s Chevening Scholarships. Here’s how to apply

Brilliant students abroad who would like to come to the UK for studies can apply for the Chevening Scholarships.

Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations

The Chevening Secretariat is accepting applications for UK Government scholarships to study in the UK in 2018/2019.

The applications for Chevening Scholarships can be submitted via www.chevening.org/apply between 7th August and 7th November 2017.

Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds.

The scholarship offers full financial support for future leaders to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university whilst gaining access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural events.

There are more than 1,500 scholarships on offer globally for the 2018/2019 academic year.

Chevening Secretariat Director, Anne Marie Graham, said: “We are looking for ambitious, professional, forward-thinking leaders from any walk of life. Although there is no single personality profile for a Chevening Scholar, all of our scholars do have one thing in common; they were bold enough to step forward and apply.

“If you are chosen for Chevening, you will receive a first-rate UK education which can open doors in your career. You will also become part of the global Chevening Alumni network full of dynamic influencers who have shared the same experience as you will, and can offer mentorship or advice.

“There is a lot to potentially gain from submitting a thoughtful application, so if you or someone you know has what it takes to be a Chevening Scholar, I would encourage you to apply before the 7 November deadline.”

Chevening Programme Manager, Louise Thomson, said: “Chevening allows you to truly follow your passions by allowing you to choose from over 14,000 eligible courses at over 150 different institutions. Whilst we expect that your experience will be academically fulfilling, you will also enjoy exclusive access to social opportunities to meet new people and travel to new places.

“You experience Britain’s heritage and history, discuss international policy, and interact with high profile personalities at a range of academic, cultural, and social events.”
