The application window for Chevening Scholarships is open to Afghans resident outside Afghanistan in a country eligible for overseas development aid until 7 November. Due to risks that are outside our control, we are not in a position to offer scholarships to Afghans resident in Afghanistan for academic year 2024/25.
