Are you looking for fully funded scholarship to study in UK? The Chevening UK Government Scholarship Programme is now opened for interested and qualified applicants for the 2023/2024.
This page will show you how to apply for the scholarship, application deadline and requirements and other details.
The UK government’s Chevening international awards program fosters the growth of world leaders. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organizations, who provide funding for Chevening, select the beneficiaries of its two categories of awards, the Chevening Fellowships and the Chevening Scholarships, respectively.
They are seeking the kind of people that can offer the solutions required for a better future with their passion, ideas, and influence. Future international leaders and influencers have a rare opportunity to grow professionally and academically, make vast connections, learn about UK culture, and establish long-lasting, fruitful partnerships with the UK through Chevening.
Chevening Scholarship Eligibility
- Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.
- Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.
- Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate programme at a UK university by the time you submit your application. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK but may be different depending on your course and university choice.
- Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of work experience.
- Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by July 13, 2023.

- 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).
- Hold refugee status in a non-Chevening eligible country. Applicants who are citizens of a Chevening-eligible country and who hold refugee status in a Chevening-eligible country are eligible for a scholarship.
