2020 Chevening Scholarship Award



Chevening is the UK Government’s global scholarship program that offers future leaders the unique opportunity to study in the UK. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding professionals from all over the world to pursue a one-year master’s degree in any subject at any UK university. 

Chevening provides fully-funded scholarships, leaving you free to focus on achieving your academic goals and enjoying the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, grow your network, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.  


As Chevening Scholarships are fully-funded, your award includes the following: 

- university tuition fees 

- a monthly stipend 

- travel costs to and from the UK 

- an arrival allowance

- a homeward departure allowance 

- the cost of one visa application 

- a travel grant to attend Chevening events in the UK

- Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.
