The Chevening UK Government Scholarship Program is fully funded. For its scholarship program for 2022–2023, the United Kingdom (UK) government is now accepting applications from citizens of nations that qualify for the Chevening program. See the application guidelines below.
Future international leaders and influencers have a rare opportunity to grow professionally and academically, make vast connections, learn about UK culture, and establish long-lasting, fruitful partnerships with the UK through Chevening.
Chevening is searching for the kind of people who can offer the solutions required for a better future and who are passionate, creative, and influential.
The UK government’s Chevening international awards program fosters the growth of world leaders. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organizations, that provide funding for Chevening, select the beneficiaries of its two categories of awards, the Chevening Fellowships, and the Chevening Scholarships, respectively.
