The Chevening Fellowships are awarded to talented mid-career professionals who have already demonstrated their capacity to lead and influence. Chevening Fellows are active in their field or subject and are looking to further enhance and expand their knowledge, skills and expertise by spending time in the UK on a fully funded short course or research project.
Chevening is funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and partner organizations with the aim of helping develop talented individuals from across the globe who will go on to be future leaders and decision makers. All of their partners are like-minded organizations with real desire to enhance the lives of people from all corners of the earth.
Chevening is the UK government’s global scholarship program that offers a unique opportunity to study in the UK and pursue a 1 year master’s degree in any subject at any UK university. If you have an ambition, leadership potential and strong academic background, you may apply for this program.
