Chevening Scholarships 2011/12 and Beyond (Deadline 28 Feb 2011)


Feb 2011

The deadline for applications for 2011/12 Chevening Scholarships in Indonesia and East Timor is 28 February 2011.

Applications 2011/2012 Chevening scholarships should be made via this Website

As in previous years we are likely to offer full scholarships for one year Master degrees at United Kingdom universities and other professional institutions.  The scholarships would cover living costs, tuition fees and return airfares.

Candidates should be aware that Chevening 2011/2012 is likely to be more closely aligned with delivery of the FCO’s priorities. More information about these is available at: http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/about-us/what-we-do/our-priorities/

The Chevening scheme is highly competitive, with only the best applicants invited for interview. We particularly encourage applications from individuals based in eastern Indonesia. Candidates will need to meet the following basic requirements:

  • Indonesian or East Timor citizens.
  • Excellent first degree with a minimum GPA >=3.0.
  • Good level of spoken and written English language (IELTS 6.5).
  • Minimum of 2 years full time post-graduate (S1) work experience.
  • Clear commitment to long-term career development.
  • Must be able to demonstrate leadership potential and the capacity to play an important role in Indonesia or East Timor’s future development.
  • We regret that we are unable to accept applications for MBAs.
  • Previous recipients of a Chevening award are not eligible to apply.
  • Employees, employee’s relatives (or former employees who have left employment within the last two years) of the FCO, including FCO posts, the British Council or any Chevening sponsors are not be eligible for these awards

When the on-going review of the Chevening scheme is finalised further details on eligibility criteria and other information relevant to applications will be posted on this page and at: http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/about-us/what-we-do/scholarships/ as well as on the Chevening Facebook page.

All candidates are encouraged to start researching appropriate postgraduate courses at UK institutions and making applications directly to them as appropriate.
