The Chevening Scholarship Scheme is the UK’s most prestigious scholarship scheme for foreign students. Its aim is to enable current and future leaders, decision-makers and opinion-formers to study in the UK and make a positive contribution to their own countries upon their return. Many former Chevening scholars have gone on to be leaders in their fields, and indeed, even leaders of their countries.

Scholarship Open for International Students: The students of Sri Lanka and the Maldives can apply for this scholarship.
The number of awards offered: Up to two Sri Lanka / Maldives Chevening Cambridge Scholarships may be awarded
Value: Each scholarship will cover the tuition fee and approved College fee in Cambridge, and a stipend for the duration of the course that is sufficient for a single person. The scholarship may also include other expenses such as return travel to/from the UK. Each scholarship offer will clearly state the terms. If the course applied for is either the MBA or MFin, for which significantly higher fees are charged, only part of the tuition fee will be paid by the scholarship, and the recipient will need to find the balance of the fee from their own resources. Again, each scholarship offer will clearly state the fee that will be covered by the scholarship.
How to Apply: The mode of applying is by Online.
