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.
