Do you have an idea for hosting an event with your fellow Cheveners?
Get involved in our scholar events competition to be in with a chance of winning up to £800 to fund the social event of the year!
Applications are open! Please specify the month you would like to hold your proposed event in your application.
- Events must be based in the UK.
- Your event idea must be open to all Chevening Scholars.
- Avoid submitting proposals for drinks receptions or a meal – the more imaginative the idea, the better!
- The budget should be used for something tangible such as entry tickets to venues. It cannot be used to cover scholar travel.
- You are encouraged to fully research your event including potential dates and costs before submitting your proposal.
- Chevening staff will not attend your event, it must be entirely scholar-led. If chosen, you will be in charge of planning, event delivery, budget management, communications and advertising.
- If chosen, you will be asked to complete an Eventbrite page for the event, and produce all communications to scholars who will attend.
- Read an example of the questions you will be asked in the example application form to help you prepare.
- Please ensure that you read the terms and conditions before you submit your proposal.
Please email us if you have any questions.
