Chevening Fellows

Chevening Fellows

Chevening Fellowships are an important element of Britain’s public diplomacy effort and bring professionals, who have already displayed outstanding leadership talents, to study in the UK. The objective of Chevening is to support foreign policy priorities and achieve FCO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision-makers.

Chevening Fellowships are offered to mid-career professionals who have reached a position of influence, and want to increase their knowledge, networks, and potential through tailored short courses at UK universities.
