Welcome to Chevening

It offers a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. You have an opportunity now to join this group of leaders. Please visit http://www.chevening.org/ to apply for 2017/18 scholarships. I am a proud alumnus of the Chevening Award and I know it is worth the investment.
