We are pleased to inform the general public that the UK Government & Chevening is seeking out qualified candidates for scholarship for the 2024/2025 academic session.
All qualified candidates are to go through this post as there are important details as regards to this post.
Chevening is the UK Government’s international scholarships programme. Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and partner organisations, we offer awards to study in the UK for one year on a fully funded master’s degree course.
Successful Chevening candidates come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds, but they all demonstrate the passion, vision and skills needed to shape a better world.
There are many benefits to being selected, including fully funded tuition fees, access to some of the best quality education in the world, exclusive networking opportunities, and the chance to explore the UK’s diverse culture.
At the end of your scholarship, you’ll join our diverse community of over 50,000 global alumni. You’ll return home equipped with the knowledge and networks to bring your ideas to life and thrive in your career.
What is included?
As Chevening Scholarships are fully-funded, your award includes the following:
- university tuition fees
- a monthly stipend
- travel costs to and from the UK
- an arrival allowance
- a homeward departure allowance
- the cost of one visa application
- a travel grant to attend Chevening events in the UK
The FCDO has completed a full assessment of the viability of offering eligible Afghans the opportunity to apply for a 2024/2025 Chevening Scholarship. We have concluded that prospective applicants currently residing in Afghanistan would likely face serious security risks, and financial and logistical implications, over which the UK Government has no control.
As a result, we are offering Afghans, resident outside of Afghanistan, the opportunity to apply for a Chevening Scholarship or Fellowship to study in the UK.
For the 2024/2025 academic year, we will only be able to accept applications from Afghans who are resident in a UK Overseas Development Aid eligible country, where we run Chevening, other than Afghanistan.
This decision will be kept under review for the 2025/2026 academic year.
If you choose to apply for a Chevening Scholarship or Fellowship you acknowledge the following:
- Applicants for Afghan Chevening awards will be expected to provide proof they are legally resident in an ODA eligible country other than Afghanistan.
- A Chevening Scholarship is not an offer of resettlement to the UK and participants will be expected to follow standard Chevening policy once they’ve completed their studies.
