The Chevening Scholarships are government funded scholarships aimed at attracting students with leadership potential to UK universities. The scheme is managed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office through the British Council.
Scholarships are applicable for commonwealth countries. Applicants must be intending to return to their home country after the study and hold an equivalent of an upper second-class honours degree in the UK or better. Other requirements include a good English, two years’ work experience and eligibility for a visa.
