Chevening Partners

The Chevening Scholarships Programme was established in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international scholarship scheme with an influential global alumni network exceeding 43,000. It is funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations.

Chevening offers full scholarships to outstanding individuals from more than 150 countries and territories to study for up to 1 year at Master’s level in higher education institutions across the UK. Chevening Scholars are high achievers working in government, business, academia, the media and civil society who demonstrate the qualities and ambition to rise to positions of leadership in their home countries.

Chevening is constantly looking for opportunities to extend its reach and impact and partnerships are a highly effective way of achieving this.

We are in the process of finalising some exciting new partnerships for the upcoming 2015/16 competition. Please check back soon as details of all our partners are currently being updated.
