It doesn’t matter where you’re from, it’s where you’re going that counts.
Applications for 2022/2023 Chevening Scholarships are now closed. If you’re considering applying when applications open next year, read on for more information about the Chevening programme.
Chevening is the UK government’s international scholarships programme. Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and partner organisations, we offer awards to study in the UK for one year on a fully funded master’s degree course.
Successful Chevening candidates come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds, but they all demonstrate the passion, vision and skills needed to shape a better world.
There are many benefits to being selected, including fully funded tuition fees, access to some of the best quality education in the world, exclusive networking opportunities, and the chance to explore the UK’s diverse culture.
At the end of your scholarship, you’ll join our diverse community of over 50,000 global alumni. You’ll return home equipped with the knowledge and networks to bring your ideas to life and thrive in your career.
It doesn’t matter where you come from. It’s where you’re going that counts.
All Chevening applicants must submit their education documents, references, and one unconditional UK university offer. The deadlines for these required documents are in the Chevening application timeline. Use the ‘update my application’ button above to upload them.
If you are conditionally selected for a Chevening Scholarship, it is essential that you submit these documents in order to remain in the process.

As applications open for the Western Balkans Cyber Security Fellowship, we hear from two alumni about the future of the cyber security sector, and the pressing need to increase diversity within the field.
We speak to international students and Chevening Alumni about their perseverance, passion, and relentless pursuit of their goals to successfully leverage their UK study experience. In this article, we hear from Chevening Alumna Adetoun Mustapha about how she's advancing scientific research to improve public health outcomes.
The last two years have been challenging for all, although we know that for some of our Cheveners what helped them greatly was taking part in national or international mentoring programmes. We asked some of the implementers of such programmes WHY and HOW should others approach such an initiative.
