Chevening in Republic of Congo

It doesn’t matter where you’re from, it’s where you’re going that counts.

Closed for applications

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.
