Welcome to Chevening

Applications for Chevening Scholarships and Fellowships are now closed. For information about the next round of awards, sign up to our newsletter.

Chevening is the UK Government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, Chevening offers two types of award – Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships – the recipients of which are personally selected by British embassies and high commissions throughout the world.

Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders and influencers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

Applications for Chevening Awards to study in the UK in 2020/2021 will reopen in August 2019.
