    Chevening Global Network

    Upon completion of their postgraduate studies, they will become part of the global network of over 50,000 professionals who have had the opportunity to train in the UK through Chevening since the program’s inception in 1983.

    There is no ‘typical’ scholar – your age, gender, religion and cultural background are not consideration factors for scholarship. We want to see that you have energy, curiosity, compassion, a clear vision of your future, and the ability to achieve your goals.

    Our alumni network is full of influential and dynamic people who have shared the same experience. When you return home from your studies, you should feel well equipped to make a real difference professionally or socially. The deadline for applications is November 1st, 2022. The Embassy will offer virtual and face-to-face information sessions in the following weeks. The link to apply is:
