Who can apply for a Chevening Scholarship?

Applications are now open for fully funded Chevening Scholarships to study for one-year master’s degrees at UK universities.

Chevening provides outstanding emerging leaders from around the world with the opportunity to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the United Kingdom.


There is no such thing as a “typical” Chevening Scholar, but those who are successful have ambition, leadership qualities, and a strong desire to affect positive change in their home countries.

If you meet our eligibility criteria and other requirements, we encourage you to apply. We are unconcerned about your gender, age (there is no upper age limit), sexual orientation, religion, marital or parental status, caste, class, or other characteristics.


What matters is your ability to submit a well-thought-out application. The application should demonstrates you are capable of excelling on a rigorous master’s programme in the UK  and that you have a clear vision for your future.

Scholarships are available to applicants who are citizens of a Chevening-eligible country and have refugee status in a Chevening-eligible country.
