Chevening Partnerships

Chevening offers scholarships for high-potential professionals to study in the UK. We do this in partnership with organisations who share our vision for investing in the education of future industry leaders.

Chevening Partnerships are agreements between organisations and the FCDO to fully or jointly fund individuals to study for a UK master’s degree. 

Chevening has two types of partners, university partners and corporate partners.

University partners waive their fees for an agreed number of international students to study with them. In return, they are provided with:

  • Opportunity to profile themselves to our 900,000 engaged international student following across social media
  • Opportunity to attend a Partnerships Reception at the FCDO, a prestigious networking event

Corporate partners fully or jointly fund individuals to study for a UK master’s degree. They often choose to fund study in specific areas that align with their organisational objectives. In return, they are provided with:

  • Collateral that showcases the impact of their investment
  • A quality corporate social responsibility (CSR) reputation
  • Opportunity to attend a Partnerships Reception at the FCDO, a prestigious networking event

What scholars say



The unparalleled UK education and Chevening experience has developed my critical thinking, advanced my view of healthcare from local to global, burgeoned my confidence and connected me to the rest of the world.

Maria Fernandez da Silva MARIA FERNANDEZ DA SILVA


I am grateful for all the kind support I have received from HSBC and Chevening, which has allowed me to quench my thirst for knowledge and enhance my academic skill set—learning how to leverage the latest digital technologies to tackle global development challenges.



Thank you to the Saïd Foundation for this opportunity to be connected with a special network of young leaders from my region and opening up a world of opportunities for us. I have also been exposed to the wider Chevening network, through which I forged connections with many passionate young leaders from around the world.
