Chevening Scholarship 2021

Chevening is the UK government’s international awards program aimed at developing global leaders.

 

Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) and partner organizations, Chevening offers two types of award – Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships – the recipients of which are personally selected by British embassies and high commissions throughout the world.

 

Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

Chevening Awards are an important element in Britain’s public diplomacy effort and bring professionals, who have already displayed outstanding leadership talents, to study in the UK. Chevening supports British foreign policy priorities and achieves FCDO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers.

 

All Chevening applicants must submit their education documents, references, and one unconditional UK university offer. The deadlines for these required documents are in the application timeline. Use the ‘update my application’ button above to upload them.

 

If you are eventually conditionally selected for a Chevening Scholarship, it is essential that you have submitted these documents in order to remain in the process.

 

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has a worldwide network of embassies and consulates, employing over 14,000 people in nearly 270 diplomatic offices. It works with international organisations to promote British interests and global security, including the EU, NATO, the United Nations, the UN Security Council, and the Commonwealth.
