- An arrival allowance.
- The cost of an entry clearance (visa) application for you only.
- A departure allowance.
- A contribution of up to £75 for TB testing, where this is required.
- A travel top-up allowance.
- A monthly personal living allowance (stipend) to cover accommodation and living expenses. The monthly stipend will depend on whether you are studying inside or outside of London. These rates are subject to annual review. Stipend payments will be made to you on or around the 21st of the month for the following full month. Where you arrive in the UK or leave the UK partway through the month, the stipend for that month will be adjusted as appropriate.
2020/2021 Chevening Scholars commence their studies in the UK September/October 2020.
A Chevening Scholarship is tenable for 12 months only but may terminate sooner in circumstances where your course is less than 12 months in length. Chevening Scholarships may not be extended beyond 12 months unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Stipend payments will only be made for the duration of your course. Should you choose to leave the UK prior to the end date noted on your award letter, stipend payments will stop on the date you depart from the UK.
