How To Apply For The British Chevening Scholarship for International Students
Applications are now open for the 2019/2020 youths to apply for the Chevening Scholarships and some Chevening Fellowships.
Chevening gives unique opportunities for future leaders, decision-makers and influencers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme and is funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and other partner organisations. The programme gives awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from different countries of the world to study for a master’s degree in any subject at any UK university.
The significance of the Chevening scholarship scheme rests on its large scope – approximately 700 scholarships are awarded each year to students from over 110 countries, allowing students from developing countries to access British tertiary education institutions, some of which are of a very high standard as determined by international rankings.

The most popular destinations for the Chevening Scholars to study in 2011 were the University College London, London School of Economics & Political Science, Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, King’s College London,  the University of Nottingham and University of Bath.
