Chevening Scholarships 2008/2009


The Chevening Scholarships programme is funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The programme offers outstanding graduates and young professionals the opportunity to study at UK universities.
The awards are made for one year’s formal study for a postgraduate qualification or for a shorter period of not less than three months to pursue private study or research at a university or similar institution in Britain.
Chevening scholarships are not available to anyone who has benefited in the last three years from other awards funded by the British Government. In the 2006/07 academic year five were offered (the number of scholarships offered varies each year).
