British Government Chevening Scholarships for Developing Countries

Most scholarships for study in the UK are funded by the British Government and are paid to another government for its students, either directly or through an organisation such as the British Council. Initially you should contact your own Ministry of Education or Education Department, which will have details of most schemes and will also be able to advise you on your own government’s conditions for studying abroad. In addition, you should contact the nearest British Council office in your country, which should give you details of relevant scholarship schemes. If there is no British Council office, then contact the nearest British Embassy or High Commission.

Chevening Scholarships are for talented people who have been identified as potential future leaders across a wide range of fields including politics, business, the media, civil society, religion and academia. Most scholars undertake a one year master’s degree.

British Chevening scholarships are awarded to extremely able students wishing to follow full-time, postgraduate or second degree courses or full-time research in a UK institution. Awards may be for study in any subject field. Preference is given to postgraduates and those already established in a career. Awards, which may cover all or part of the costs, are usually given for formal courses of postgraduate study but may be given for shorter vocational or research courses.

There is no coordinated global launch of the programme. British missions around the world will advertise Chevening separately, so timings will vary. Some Embassies will advertise as early as late autumn, while others will start as late as spring.

Before applying

Please check your local British Embassy or High Commission website, and your local British Council website, for details about how the scheme will operate in your country, including information about timings and whether criteria about areas of interest have been applied.
