The Chevening programme was established in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international scheme. This year the Scholarships will support more than 600 individuals.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with demonstrable leadership potential who also have strong academic backgrounds. The scholarship offers financial support to study for a master’s degree at any UK university and the opportunity to become part of an influential global network of 46,000 alumni.
