Chevening Scholarships for Uzbek Nationals


The British Chevening Scholarships, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, are prestigious awards enabling future leaders to study in the United Kingdom and join an international network of future fellow leaders. The objective of these scholarships is to provide outstanding graduates with an opportunity to pursue postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom. These courses should be relevant both to career development and to the national development of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The ideal candidate is expected to have an excellent academic record, excellent English language skills and a clear understanding of the importance of their area of study. They should also be able to demonstrate that they have already made an impact in their field and that they will continue to do so in the future.

Chevening Scholarships 2011-2012

The British Embassy in Tashkent is offering a number of Chevening Scholarships to enable Uzbek nationals to undertake postgraduate study in the UK during the academic year 2011/2012.

The scholarships are fully funded and cover course fees, living allowance and return airfare. The scholarships are for postgraduate study of up to a maximum of twelve months. Most scholars undertake Masters programmes, but awards to pursue short courses or research for between three to twelve months are also offered.

Applications are invited for study in all subject areas, however priority will be given to the following:

• Law and Human Rights
• Economics and Politics
• International Relations
• Economics
• Politics
• Communications, Media and Journalism

Competition for scholarships is very high. The selection process is rigorous and includes short-listed candidates attending a demanding interview in which a panel will assess whether they can satisfactorily prove that they have already made an impact in their area of specialism and that they will genuinely be future leaders.


Only applicants who meet the following criteria will normally be considered:

• Applicants must already hold a higher education diploma
• Minimum of 2 years post-graduate work experience related to the sector of study they are applying and in which they have shown a track record of leadership and impact
• Excellent command of English
• Citizen of Uzbekistan


• Employees of the FCO (including FCO Posts), the British Council, a co-sponsor or a sponsoring university, or their relatives, or former employees who have left such employment within the past two years;
• People who have already received financial benefit from an HMG-funded award. Those applying for courses of less than twelve weeks’ duration, part time courses, distance learning, secondary education or undergraduate degrees;
• Those who apply from another country unless they are able to return to their home country for interview and to demonstrate their intention to become a future leader there.

How to apply?

Successful applicants should determine a course of study relevant to the development of your organization or your field of professional activity. Applicants should state how their proposal will help their career progression on their return to Uzbekistan.

You can only apply online through an electronic form. No paper applications will be accepted.


The deadline is Friday 25 March 2011. No applications will be accepted after this date.

Should applicants have an Institution in Mind?

Not necessarily. However, it is recommended that applicants find out about available courses before applying.

Selection process

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in English during April 2011. Candidates will also be asked to take an English Language Assessment Test (IELTS). The information about IELTS tests may be obtained from the British Council Learning Centre. Applicants must be available for interview in Tashkent.

The selection committee will make the final decision on whether applicants will receive a scholarship and what form it will take. You should expect to hear the result by 25 May 2011.
