The Chevening programme, has, for over 26 years, provided more than 30,000 Scholarships at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the UK for postgraduate students or researchers from countries across the world.
Largely funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Scholarship scheme also receives significant contributions from HEIs and other organisations in the UK, and from a wide range of overseas sponsors including governmental and private sector bodies, with which the FCO or its overseas Posts have partnership agreements.
Chevening Scholarships offer an ideal opportunity for young graduates not only to pursue higher education in their chosen field, but also to meet and network with peers and experts in the unique learning atmosphere that the UK provides. The programme's objectives include helping them in their career progression towards becoming leaders in their countries, strengthening cultural ties and building a network of friends of the UK.
Filipino, Marshallese, Micronesian and Palauan candidates are selected by the British Embassy in Manila. The scheme is managed by the British Council on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
