Candidates seeking a postgraduate scholarship in the United Kingdom for 2013/2014 may now register their interest online, thanks to a new website.
The online site, www.chevening.org, has launched to give details of Chevening Scholarships, which is the UK government’s global scholarship programme.
The scholarships are funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and partner organisations, operate in more than 100 countries worldwide and this year will support about 700 students.
Awards are typically for a one-year master’s degree in any subject and at any UK university.
The new website aims to make the scholarships more accessible than ever before. By registering their interest in advance, candidates will receive alerts at key stages in the process, including when applications open and find out more about the process and priorities.
Scholarships are aimed particularly at high quality candidates who are likely to assume leadership roles in future careers. There are no age limits, but candidates who have already demonstrated leadership potential will be welcome.
In addition to giving details of the Chevening application process, the website provides updates about the latest developments in the scheme worldwide and important information on applying for higher educations courses in the UK.
