Notice: We have been made aware of agencies offering assistance on Chevening Scholarship applications for a fee. We can confirm that these agencies are not approved or endorsed by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, or the Chevening Secretariat. We advise potential applicants against the use of these services in the strongest possible terms. Use of a paid for service for Chevening applications is not permitted.

Additional information

Our partners

Chevening is funded by the FCO and partner organisations. Our partners contribute by co-sponsoring scholarships in your country/territory. Due to their generosity, there are more opportunities to study in the UK. Although you can still apply to any UK university, whether they are a partner or not, if your application is successful and you have applied to study a course supported by one of our partners, you will be automatically considered for a co-sponsored Chevening Scholarship.
