Application now open for Chevening Gurukul Fellowships

The Chevening Gurukul Leadership Programme is the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s flagship fellowship for India and has run for more than 20 years.

Chevening Fellowships are awarded to talented professionals who are potential future leaders, decision-makers, and opinion formers.  The fellowships offer financial support to mid-career professionals already in positions of leadership and influence.  These people are active in their field or subject and are looking to further enhance and expand their knowledge, skills and expertise by spending time in the UK on a short course or for a predetermined period of self-directed research.

In September 2017, the University of Oxford with the Department of Politics and International Relations will commence running the 12-week Gurukul Leadership Programme.

Applications for this programme are open between 1 February and 27 March 2017. Visit to apply.
