Applications are invited for the 2011/12 Chevening Scholarship, which is a British Government funded scholarship awarded for post graduate study in the United Kingdom of up to twelve months. They are fully funded and cover course fees, a living allowance and a return airfare. The scholarships enable talented young graduates and professionals from over 150 countries worldwide, with the drive and vision to become future leaders, to pursue their studies in the United Kingdom.
