Chevening Scholarships Program 2019/2020, UK


Chevening offers a diverse range of fellowships, enabling mid-career professionals from across the globe to enhance their knowledge. Click on the programmes for more details about each, including profiles of our current fellows and of our esteemed alumni. Chevening Fellowships are offered to mid-career professionals who have reached a position of influence, and want to increase their knowledge, networks, and potential through tailored short courses at UK universities.

Chevening Fellowships are an important element of Britain’s public diplomacy effort and bring professionals, who have already displayed outstanding leadership talents, to study in the UK. The objective of Chevening is to support foreign policy priorities and achieve FCO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision-makers.


The objectives of the fellowships tier are to:

  • Support mid-career professionals already in positions of leadership and influence to further enhance and expand their knowledge, skills and expertise in the UK
  • Offer dynamic training, professional development, or research opportunities in the UK, relevant to professional interests and UK’s international strategic priorities
  • Increase the breadth and diversity of awards offered under Chevening to position Chevening as an internationally competitive awards scheme
  • Support foreign policy priorities and achieve FCO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision makers, which become valuable soft power networks
