Applications for Chevening Scholarship to study in the United Kingdom (UK) are now open until November 3.

Applications should be submitted via www.chevening.org/apply, according to a press release from the British High Commission in Brunei Darussalam.

Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals demonstrating they have the commitment and skills to create positive change and can show how a UK Master’s degree will help them do that.

The scholarship offers full financial support to study for any eligible Master’s degree at any UK university while also gaining access to a range of academic, professional and cultural experiences.

Since the programme was created in 1983, over 50,000 professionals had the opportunity to develop in the UK through Chevening. There are more than 1,500 scholarships on offer globally for the 2021/2022 academic year demonstrating the UK’s commitment towards developing the leaders of tomorrow.

Head of Scholarships at the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) Naomi Rayner, said, “This year more than ever, we have seen how global challenges demand innovation, strong leadership and international collaboration. Chevening seeks to build an international community of people who are committed to those values, and to driving positive change. We do this by bringing together incredible people from around the world and supporting them, through education, to achieve their goals.

“In the UK we are proud of our world class universities and we know that our learning environments are enriched by the wide diversity of cultures, experiences and viewpoints represented on our campuses. Chevening scholars make a significant contribution to these communities, as well as becoming an important part of our network of over 50,000 alumni.”
