Government scholarship (Chevening - United Kingdom)


Chevening is the UK government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders since 1983. It is funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organizations. Chevening offers two types of awards – Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships. The recipients of the award are personally selected by British Embassies and High Commissions throughout the world. The objective of Chevening is to support foreign policy priorities and achieve FCO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers.
