Chevening scholarships 2011/12 and beyond

The Chevening programme is currently under review. Work is being undertaken to examine all areas of the scheme including eligibility requirements, selection criteria, target regions and priority study areas. We will not be able to accept any applications for 2011/12 until the details of the new scheme have been agreed. This will be by the end of January 2011. Details will be posted on this page and also on the Chevening Facebook page.
If you are interested in applying for a Chevening scholarship in 2011/2012 please check these pages regularly from December onwards and keep in touch with your local British Embassy or High Commission. In the meantime we will be unable to answer individual enquiries about the scheme.

What is the Chevening Programme?

The Chevening programme, has, over 26 years, provided more than 30,000 Scholarships at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the UK for postgraduate students or researchers from countries across the world.

Largely funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Scholarship scheme also receives significant contributions from HEIs and other organisations in the UK, and from a wide range of overseas sponsors including governmental and private sector bodies, with which the FCO or its overseas Posts have partnership agreements.

The programme is managed by the British Council, on behalf of the FCO, both in the UK and overseas.
