UK Opens Applications for Chevening Scholarships

You do not have to apply for all scholarships, grants, and fellowships actively. Whenever you apply to the institutions concerned, you will be automatically deemed for someone you are qualified for, but that’s not always the case. You will often have to register, so make sure you follow once you understand where you will study.

Other organizations may also provide scholarships, grants, and fellowships, and you will not be automatically considered for these if you do not apply! Keeping your application meaningful will determine whether your application succeeds or fails.

When trying to apply for a scholarship, grant, or prize, keep in mind that the awarding body may receive many applications. Thus they’ll be looking for applicants who best fit one’s eligibility criteria, so the first step in applying for scholarships is to identify the schemes in which you are most interested.

Scholarships from the UK

From Tuesday, August 3, the United Kingdom (UK) state will welcome submissions for the Chevening Scholarship, which will be open until November 2, 2021.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and partner organizations sponsor Chevening, the UK government’s foreign scholarship program. The award provides financial assistance to students pursuing any suitable university program at a UK institution.

The invitation for fresh candidates comes after accepting 37 Pakistani scholars awarded a scholarship to college at a UK university the following year.

For the past two years, women have made up about 60% of the British High Commission’s intake, as per Fouzia Younis, serving as a Head of Communication and Public Diplomacy.

“Chevening opens doors for everyone. We have exceeded our 50% gender target for the past two years, with bright Pakistani women accounting for nearly 60% of our admissions. I encourage people from all throughout Pakistan, as well as minorities, to apply. Ambition knows no bounds,” she continued.
