The Government of UK is delighted to invite applications for the 2018-2019 Chevening Scholarships for Nigeria. Chevening Scholarships in Nigeria are awarded to outstanding emerging leaders to pursue a one-year Master’s degree programme at any UK university. They provide a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. A Chevening award offers financial support along with the opportunity of becoming part of the highly regarded and influential Chevening global network.
Applicants from Nigeria can choose any course of study at any UK higher education institution, when selecting your field of study please refer to the UK priorities in your country.
