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.
Funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and 124 valued partner organisations, Chevening allows 1,800 of the brightest and best to gain a world-class university education in the UK every year.
Chevening Partnerships are agreements between organisations and the FCDO to fully or jointly fund an agreed number of scholarships in subject areas aligned with the strategic objectives of the organisation.
After a year studying in the UK, scholars return to home equipped with the skills, knowledge, and a global network to make positive, lasting change in their sectors, communities, and their countries.

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.
