Chevening Scholars

Chevening Scholars

Chevening Scholarships 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.

As a Chevening Scholar, there is a lot of information to take in regarding your award as well as living in the UK. This section of the website will keep you up to date with travel information, policy, news, and events, as well as other opportunities available to you through Chevening.
