The United Kingdom's applications for the Chevening Scholarships to study in the country are now open with November 3, 2020 being the last date to apply.
The scholarship is the UK government’s international awards programme which aims to develop global leaders, said a press release. The programme is fully funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and offers two types of award - Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships. Interested applicants apply to the programme via www.chevening.org/apply.
According to the press release, the programme gives the opportunity to outstanding mid-career professionals from all over the world to pursue a one-year master’s degree in the UK. It added that the experience is a life-changing opportunity for those who have ambition, leadership qualities, and a strong academic background.
The British High Commission in Pakistan encourages interested candidates to apply if they meet the scholarship eligibility criteria and other requirements by visiting the Chevening website www.chevening.org/apply. The High Commission’s ambition is to have an equal number of male and female Chevening scholars from Pakistan.
The call for the 2021 applications follows the selection of 53 scholars from Pakistan, who were awarded the opportunity to study at a UK university this year. Successful applicants for 2020 are sharing their stories through the #ChosenForChevening hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.
