What are Chevening Scholarships?
Chevening Scholarships are prestigious awards available to international students for study in the United Kingdom.
Chevening scholarships offer an ideal opportunity for young, high-flying graduates not only to study their chosen subject, but also to meet and network with their peers in the unique learning atmosphere that the UK provides. The ultimate objective is to build a network of friends of the UK, who will be future leaders in their countries.
Candidates are selected by the British Embassy in Manila. The scheme is managed by the British Council on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
