About Chevening Scholarships
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with strong academic backgrounds who also have demonstrable leadership potential. The scholarship offers financial support to study for a Master’s degree at any of the UK’s leading universities and the opportunity to become part of an influential global network of 44,000 alumni.

To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:
> Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country
> Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended
> Have an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry to a postgraduate programme at a UK university. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK.
> Have at least two years’ work experience (this may be up to five years for fellowship programmes, please refer to your country page for further details)
> Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 13 July 2017
> Meet the Chevening English language requirement by 13 July 2017


You are not eligible for a Chevening Award if you:
> Hold British or dual British citizenship (unless you are a citizen of a British Overseas Territory or hold BN(O) and are applying from Hong Kong)
> Are an employee, a relative of an employee, or a former employee (since July 2014) of Her Majesty’s Government (including British Embassies/High Commissions, the Department for International Development, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, UK Trade and Investment, the Ministry of Defence and the Home Office), the British Council, a partner, a sponsoring UK university, or a staff member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities
(Note: Immediate relatives are defined as parents or step-parents, siblings or step-siblings, children or step-children, spouse, civil partner or unmarried partner (where the couple have been in a relationship akin to marriage or civil partnership for at least two years)
> Have previously studied in the UK with funding from a UK Government-funded scholarship. Chevening Alumni are not eligible to apply for a further scholarship but may be eligible to apply for a fellowship five years after completion of the first award.

Once submitted, your application will be reviewed against the Chevening eligibility criteria. If you failed to meet the work experience requirement, or have entered something in your declaration that makes you ineligible, you will be given one opportunity to review and amend your entries for these two sections.

You will receive instructions on how to review these sections via email and you will have until 48 hours prior to the application deadline to amend your answers. For scholarships, this is 1200 GMT on 6 November 2016. Failure to amend your answers will mean your application will not be considered for an award.

Application deadline:
Applications for all scholarships and some fellowships close on 8 November at 12:00 GMT (midday UK time).
