General information

Applications for 2022/2023 Chevening Scholarships

Applications closed at 12:00pm GMT on the Tuesday 2 November. We encourage people to apply early to avoid disappointment. Whilst we do understand that sometimes personal matters may arise at the last minute which can lead to delays, we do open the application process across a 3-month period to accommodate this and are thus unable to accept applications after the deadline. In addition, please note that we cannot reinstate applications once they have been withdrawn.

The Chevening team has worked hard to thoroughly investigate the technical issues which a small number of Online Applications System users experienced before applications closed, with a view to ensuring the fairest possible outcome. With an application system which this year supported 58,000 applications, this has been a significant piece of work.

Our records show that our system was receiving large numbers of applications right up until the deadline and there was no major system outage. Given this, and having explored all possible options, we have concluded that there is no fair way to allow for any further application submissions. We know that this will be disappointing to those who did not manage to submit before the deadline. However, we would encourage this group to apply as early as possible next year.

If you are interested in applying for a Chevening Scholarship in the future, we encourage you to apply again next year. You can subscribe to our newsletter, the Alphagram, if you would like to be reminded of when applications re-open.
