18Chevening’s over 50,000-strong alumni network includes 18 current or former heads of state or government. Chevening Alumni excel in a variety of fields outside of politics too.
Because of our partners, the lives of some of the most inspiring future leaders have been transformed. Chevening is about education, but also about so much more. It opens up opportunities for personal and professional growth that are out of reach to most people and enables them to fulfil their potential, irrespective of their background.
Chevening Awards are highly competitive, and to be selected for an award is a mark of potential and of prestige. When Cheveners return home at the end of their studies, the new knowledge, networks, qualifications, and confidence they bring back with them should mean they are an even greater asset to any organisation.
Completing your award is not the end of your Chevening journey, it’s only the end of the beginning. As you progress along new paths with a new perspective and purpose, there are many ways to stay connected with and give back to Chevening, the UK, and the global community.
