Chevening scholarships

The Foreign Secretary has now announced Foreign Office programme spending for 2011-12, and updated Parliament on plans to align programme spend with Foreign Office priorities. Read the full Written Ministerial Statement

This announcement confirmed the budget for scholarships in 2011-12, including Chevening. The application and selection process for the Chevening scheme is underway in many countries. However, before making an application you should visit the local British Embassy or High Commission or British Council office website, where any details about how the scheme will run locally will be published; including if the Chevening programme is running in your country, any local guidance or criteria, as well as application opening and closing dates.

You can apply for a Chevening scholarship using our online application system eChevening. Remember that Chevening scholarships are prestigious and sought after awards aimed at extremely capable individuals who have already made an impact and are motivated to pursue a career that will take them to a position of leadership within their own country.

Over the course of the next few days and weeks we will be updating this page and  our official Chevening Facebook page regularly.

Get to know Chevening by reading Gary Fisher's blog, or make contact with other potential candidates through our Chevening Facebook page or by reading blogs from Chevening scholars and alumni.

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.
