Applications for the Chevening Scholarship Awards for the 2022 intake will open this year from Tuesday, 3August, and close on Tuesday, 2 November. 

The programme is fully funded by the Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office and is aimed at those with leadership potential. It offers one year’s study in the UK for a Master’s degree in any subject. The next round of studies will commence in September/October 2022.

Eligible criteria that must be met before applying for a Chevening Scholarship includes:

  • You must have completed all components of an undergraduate degree to gain entry at postgraduate level
  • You must have at least two years’ work experience
  • You must not have studied in the UK previously with funding from a UK government-funded scholarship
  • You must return to your country after your study in the UK for a minimum period of two years.

As well as developing yourself academically and in your chosen field of study, you will also develop yourself professionally. You will gain first-hand knowledge and experience of UK institutions, British culture and values. You will also build and maintain valuable connections and network with fellow scholars and the Chevening community and build long lasting positive relationships, useful for when you return to the Island.
