Top 10 Scholarship for Chad students to study in Canada

What is a Chevening Scholarship?

Chevening is the UK government’s international scholarships programme. Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and partner organisations, we offer awards to study in the UK for one year on a fully funded master’s degree course.

Successful Chevening candidates come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds, but they all demonstrate the passion, vision and skills needed to shape a better world.

In this article, we are going to teach you how to apply for a Chevening Scholarship as a Canadian student.

Scholarship Package includes;

As Chevening Scholarships are fully-funded, your award includes the following:

  • university tuition fees
  • a monthly stipend
  • travel costs to and from the UK
  • an arrival allowance
  • a homeward departure allowance
  • the cost of one visa application
  • a travel grant to attend Chevening events in the UK

Eligibility

Ineligible applications will be rejected, so it is important that you check that you meet our eligibility criteria before you start your application. To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:

  • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.
  • Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.
  • Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate programme at a Canadian university by the time you submit your application. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in Canada but may be different depending on your course and university choice.
  • Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of work experience.
  • Apply to three different eligible Canadian university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 13 July 2023.
  • You are not eligible for a Chevening Scholarship if you:
  • Hold Canadian citizenship.
  • Hold refugee status in a non-Chevening eligible country. Applicants who are citizens of a Chevening-eligible country and who hold refugee status in a Chevening-eligible country are eligible for a scholarship.
  • Are an employee, a former employee, or relative of an employee of Canadian Government, or have been within the last two years from the opening of Chevening applications (including the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, all Canadian Embassies/High Commissions, the Home Office, the Ministry of Defence, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Department for International Trade), the British Council, a sponsoring Canadian university, or a staff member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
  • Employees, former employees, or relatives of an employee of Chevening Partner organisations are eligible to apply, but if the employment took place within the last two years, you cannot receive a Chevening Partner Award from the organisation from which you work, previously worked, or are affiliated with through relatives.
  • Have previously studied in Canada with funding from a Canadian Government-funded scholarship.
