Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and partner organisations, such as the University of Warwick. The scholarships support individuals with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision makers and opinion formers to study eligible one year taught master's degrees at UK institutions.
Chevening and the University of Warwick have a long history of collaboration.
'By partnering with Chevening, the University of Warwick is able to attract outstanding students who might not otherwise be able to come to the university, contributing to capacity-building and the education of future leaders in the countries we have committed to work with!' - Professor Chris Ennew OBE, Provost
In 2019/20 Warwick welcomed 49 Chevening Scholars and in 2020/21 we are welcoming 34.
