Chevening Scholarships

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

Since 2020 Warwick has welcomed over 130 Chevening scholars with 47 joining us in 2023/24, our biggest ever cohort.

To be eligible for a Chevening scholarship applicants must:

  • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.
  • Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after the award has ended.
  • Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable entry onto a postgraduate programme at a UK university by the time they submit their application.
  • Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of work experience.
  • Apply for three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 11th July 2024

The University of Warwick welcomes applications from candidates from all Chevening-eligible countries in any subject.
