The aim of the Chevening Scholarships scheme is to bring to the UK future leaders, decision-makers and opinion-formers for a period of postgraduate study at a formative stage of their careers. A Chevening scholarship gives you the chance to experience a world-renowned educational system, taste UK life, and meet other Chevening scholars, and more. Once you become a Chevening scholar, you will discover many opportunities to develop your career and become a future leader in your field.

To apply, go to our new online Chevening application site and follow the instructions. At the beginning of the process you will be asked to create a log-in name and password.
