Chevening Scholarships enable outstanding emerging leaders from all over the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the UK. Whilst there is no ‘typical’ Chevening Scholar, we are looking for the kind of people who have the passion, ideas, and influence to provide the solutions and leadership needed to create a better future.
Because these scholarships are fully-funded (flights, accommodation, and course fees are all included), you are free to focus on achieving your professional goals and maximising the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. On completing your studies, you will leave the UK equipped with the knowledge and networks necessary to bring your own ideas to life.
The process of selecting Chevening Scholars takes a minimum of eight months from the application deadline to when applicants are conditionally selected for an award. Here is an overview of the application and selection process, so you always know what’s going on.
APPLICATIONS CLOSE AT 12:00 GMT
The deadline will close at 12:00 GMT on 5 November. Please do not leave it to the last minute to submit your application, as late submissions can not be accepted.
APPLICATIONS ARE SIFTED AGAINST ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA.

READING COMMITTEE ASSESSMENTS
Independent reading committees assess all eligible applications. Their scores and rankings are then passed back to the British embassy/high commission.
APPLICANTS SHORTLISTED FOR INTERVIEWS
Once the embassy/high commission has reviewed the applications that were passed on to them, they produce a shortlist of those who they will invite to interview. Congratulations if you make it this far. To prepare for your interview, please read our interview guidance.
REFERENCES AND EDUCATION DOCUMENTS DEADLINE
The deadline to submit two references and education documents is 12:00 GMT (noon). Read about what we require from your references.
INTERVIEWS TAKE PLACE

After months of preparation and trepidation, the strongest candidates will experience jubilation when interview results are announced.
