Scholarships are offered in over 150 countries and enable talented graduates and bright young professionals to become familiar with the UK, gain new skills or update current ones. The overall aim for these future leaders is to benefit their countries upon their return.

Each year the Chevening programme provides around 2,300 new scholarships for postgraduate studies or research at UK institutions of higher education. In Pakistan, scholarships are awarded to Pakistani nationals of high intellectual ability who will play a formative role in Pakistan’s development.

The scholarships cover the full cost of study in the UK. Applicants: must have a Masters’ degree or a four-year Bachelors degree from any recognised university in Pakistan or the equivalent from an overseas institution; should normally be between 25 and 35 years of age; must have a minimum of three years of work experience; must be Pakistani citizens. Dual nationals are not eligible. They must not have received in the past three years any British government funded academic award.
