Eligibility

  • Only citizens of Sri Lanka and the Maldives are eligible for the opportunity .  The awards are targeted at students who meet the Chevening criteria of academic excellence, high motivation, and potential leadership qualities, and who can fulfill the rigorous admission criteria of the University of Cambridge.
  • Any Masters or one-year taught a postgraduate course at the University of Cambridge will be eligible, but priority will be given to courses in the Human Rights, Conflict Prevention / Development Studies and Governance / Public Administration fields.

Open for International Students: The students of Sri Lanka and the Maldives can apply for this application .

The number of awards offered: Up to two Sri Lanka / Maldives Chevening Cambridge Scholarships may be awarded

Value: Each support 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 program, 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 program.

How to Apply: The mode of applying is by Online.

Application Deadline: Check back next year
