Chevening in South Caucasus

Study in the UK on a fully funded Chevening Scholarship

Closed for applications

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.

The South Caucasus Chevening Scholarship welcomes applications from those who normally reside in the following three regions only – South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Nagomo-Karabakh.

Applicants who identify themselves as Georgian, Armenian or Azerbaijani must make an application from the respective country page and not from the South Caucasus page.

There are many benefits to being selected for a Chevening Scholarship, including a financial contribution from the UK government, 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 55,000 global alumni. You’ll return home equipped with the knowledge and networks to bring your ideas to life and thrive in your career.
