The prestigious Chevening Scholarships and Fellowships offer full financial support for a one-year master’s at any UK university and for 8-12 week professional development courses, respectively.
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 have increased further, with the Adani Group co-sponsoring 15 additional scholarships in artificial intelligence over three years. The Chevening Fellowships on offer this year are: Chevening India Cyber Security Fellowship; Chevening Research, Science, and Innovation Leadership Fellowship; Chevening Gurukul Fellowship for Leadership and Excellence; South Asia Journalism Fellowship.
The British High Commission in New Delhi hosted a special reception today for the scholars chosen as part of the UK’s Government special initiative to offer additional scholarships in celebration of India’s 75th year of Independence – with the support of HSBC India, Pearson India, Hindustan Unilever, Tata Sons and Duolingo – over 60% of this cohort hailed from non-metro cities, and 50% are women
Alex Ellis, British High Commissioner to India, said:
Investing in your education in another country is a defining experience; so many congratulations to the next generation of India’s leaders going to the UK as Chevening scholar. It was fantastic to hear about the inspiring plans and to share ideas with them about what they should do and where they should go in the UK.
Chevening offers people an unparalleled opportunity to experience the best of the UK, with full financial support. I’m delighted that we have been able to achieve one of our most diverse cohorts this year, with the amazing support from our partners. I encourage even more people from across India to apply for a Chevening Scholarship and Fellowships.
