Chevening Scholarships

Volume 690: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What proposals they have for the future allocation and funding of the Chevening scholarships. [HL2534]

Following a review of the Chevening scholarship programme last year, we have established as the objective of the programme building influence for the UK among the leaders of the future in support of the Government's international strategic priorities. Future decisions on allocations and funding will be taken in the context of the outcome of the Comprehensive Spending Review, but will be made against this objective. The programme will continue to operate worldwide, but with allocation weighted towards countries where we believe the Chevening programme can contribute most to support for delivery of the international strategic priorities.
