Chevening Scholarships for academic year 2013/2014
The Chevening Scholarships Programme is a prestigious awards scheme that funds international postgraduate students who want to study in the United Kingdom. It is funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and administered by the British Council.
These scholarships are available in more than 150 countries. So far, more than 300 Croatian citizens have received their Chevening awards.
Application period for Chevening scholarships for the academic year 2013/14 for Croatia is now open!
The deadline for the submission of applications is 7 December 2012.
Scholarships are targeted towards a broad range of fields and disciplines, however priority areas may vary slightly each year. For 2013/14, we welcome applications from candidates who wish to study for a Master's degree in the following academic fields:
- Law and Legal Studies
- Public Administration
- Environmental Policy
We are offering scholarships for postgraduate courses running over a period not shorter than 3 months and up to maximum of 12-15 months for Master’s degrees in the academic year 2013 – 2014.
What the scholarship covers
A full Chevening Scholarship award normally comprises:
- payment of tuition fees;
- travel to and from your country of residence by an approved route for you only;
- an arrival allowance;
- a grant for the cost of preparation of a thesis or dissertation (if required);
- an excess baggage allowance;
- the cost of an entry clearance (visa) application for you only;
- 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 London. It is currently £917 per month outside London and £1134 per month inside London (subject to annual review).
The Chevening selection panel may also offer part Scholarship awards. This award may fund tuition fees only (no stipend or other allowance) or stipend and allowances only (no tuition fees). In the case of part awards you will be expected to fund any difference.
You are expected to submit applications to UK universities before, or at the same time as, applying for a Chevening Scholarship. It is your responsibility to pay for any fee relating to your university applications, (including administration fees, English tests and GMAT tests).
You will be asked to state the names of three chosen UK Masters' courses and universities on the Chevening application form, in order of preference. You must include on the Chevening application form the full name of the university/universities and the exact name of your preferred courses (as set out on the university website or prospectus). Only Masters' courses starting in September/October 2013 are eligible for funding. Courses starting later in 2013 or in 2014 are not eligible for funding.

Application and selection procedure
To apply for a Chevening Scholarship, you must complete and submit an online eChevening application form.
We recommend that you submit your application as early as possible - preferably well before the closing date for your country.
Applications will be sifted against the Chevening eligibility criteria and then reviewed by a committee chaired by a Regional Advisor and administered by the Chevening Scholarships Secretariat. The Regional Advisor will make recommendations to the local British Embassy or British High Commission about which candidates might be invited for interview.
The final decision on which candidates are invited for interview will be made by the local British Embassy or British High Commission.
The interview panel will make recommendations on who is to be offered a Scholarship and which (if any) candidates should be placed on a reserve list. You will be informed of the outcome of your interview as soon as possible.
For more information on the application process, please read the Chevening guidance.
