In a thriving announcement, British Deputy High Commissioner – Caroline Rowett recently shared about the Chevening scholarship that “offers people an unparalleled opportunity to experience the best of the UK, with full financial support.”
The last date to apply for the UK Government’s prestigious Chevening Scholarships is November 1 and the applications can be submitted via chevening.org/apply.
The Chevening programme in India is the largest in the world, benefiting over 3,500 scholars and fellows since 1983. The number of awards on offer in India has increased further, with the Adani Group co-sponsoring 15 additional scholarships in artificial intelligence over three years.
Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals who can demonstrate that they have the commitment and skills required to create positive change and can show how a UK master’s degree will help them do that.
The scholarship offers full financial support for scholars to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university while also gaining access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional and cultural experiences.
Over 40% of the selected scholars from India in recent years have come from smaller towns, and not metro cities. Significantly, 50% of the cohort are women.
“I would be very happy to see more applicants from this region including Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. I encourage even more people from across India to apply for a Chevening Scholarship,” Caroline Rowett, British Deputy High Commissioner, Chandigarh concluded.
