A place. Chevening is a place. It is a large historic country house in Kent, England. Though it is not an official residence, it has been traditionally used by the Foreign Secretary… I’ll stop here because this blog is not about Chevening House, redirect to Wikipedia for that please. Unless you are searching for information on Chevening Scholarship, then you are in the right place. 

Chevening Scholarship is a fully funded international masters award scholarship funded by the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to outstanding students with leadership qualities from over 160 countries to study in Universities in the UK. Learn more on the Chevening Website

It is one of the most competitive and prestigious scholarships globally with over 58,000 applicants in 2022 and only 1500+ selected candidates. There’s generally a 2-3% chance of getting selected.

You can check eligibility requirements on the Chevening website.

Most importantly, it is a leadership programme where potential future global leaders are harnessed from all over the world.

Next year, the Chevening programme would be running for the fortieth year having produced more than 50,000 alumni so far. 


If you wish to apply for the 2023/24 session, application is now open from the 2nd August, 2022- 2nd Nov, 2022.

The site is packed with information. It is honestly the most detailed website I know if you know how to search. 

Bookmark My Chevening Diary for information on the most prestigious scholarship globally. I will be sharing application and interview tips, visa processing experiences, my UK study stories, my food diary (the love of food is the beginning of all kinship), my UK travel blog and lots more.

From Hafsah, With Love.

WOW, Nice to be here.. I am an eligible candidate for this scholarship, making different research on how I can get reliable information that will guide my application and luckily I stumbled on your blog. With Your experience and guidance I hope I will scale through these processes and become a chevener like you.
