Scholarships to Canada, Israel, and International individuals who have completed an undergraduate degree to pursue studies toward a Master's degree at a UK university. This scholarship program is intended to assist emerging leaders from all over the world in developing professionally and academically, networking extensively, experiencing UK culture, and building lasting positive relationships within the UK.

Chevening Scholarships enable outstanding emerging leaders from all over the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the UK. Whilst there is no ‘typical’ Chevening Scholar, Chevening is looking for the kind of people who have the passion, ideas, and influence to provide the solutions and leadership needed to create a better future.

Because these scholarships are fully-funded (flights, accommodation, and course fees are all included), you are free to focus on achieving your professional goals and maximizing the experience of a lifetime.  On completing your studies, you will leave the UK equipped with the knowledge and networks necessary to bring your own ideas to life.

A full Chevening Scholarship normally comprises:
- Payment of tuition fees (see point 1.2.a in relation to MBA fee caps).
- Economy travel to and from your country of residence by an approved route for you only.
- An arrival allowance.
- The cost of an entry clearance (visa) application for you only.
- A departure allowance.

A Chevening Scholarship is tenable for 12 months only but may terminate sooner in circumstances where your course is less than 12 months in length. Chevening Scholarships may not be extended beyond 12 months unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:
- Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.
- Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.
- Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate program at a UK university by the time you submit your application.

- Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of work experience.
- Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 15 July 2021.

- Are an employee, a former employee, or relative* of an employee (since July 2017) of Her Majesty’s Government (including British embassies/high commissions; the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy; Department for International Trade; the Ministry of Defence; and the Home Office), or a staff member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
