Chevening Scholarships are for talented people who have been identified as potential future leaders across a wide range of fields including politics, business, the media, civil society, religion and academia. Most scholars undertake a one year master’s degree.
In the current academic year there are over 500 Chevening scholars at universities across the UK. The programme is mainly funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, with some contributions from Higher Education Institutions and other partners in the UK. Our Embassies and High Commissions also have partnership agreements with a wide range of overseas sponsors including governmental and private sector bodies. The programme is managed in UK and overseas by the British Council through a Service Level Agreement.
