Who can partner with us

Chevening partners with 120 organisations, including private companies, NGOs, foreign government departments and UK universities. Chevening Partners share our commitment to the professional development and growth of future leaders.

Chevening Partnerships are agreements between organisations and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to fully or jointly fund an agreed number of scholarships in subject areas aligned with the strategic objectives of the organisation. One in four of our scholars was supported by a partner in 2018/2019, and we believe that organisations benefit from helping us to develop these talented individuals.
