Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the FCO and partner organisations. National merit-based competitions in 118 countries are run each year and Scholarships are awarded to outstanding established or emerging leaders to pursue one-year Master’s degrees in any subject and at any UK university.

Initial application is facilitated via the eChevening online system. Typically, up to 25,000 applications are received. These applications are first reviewed against certain eligibility criteria, and those that make the cut are then sent to Reading Committees for assessment. The Chevening Scholarships Secretariat is recruiting for both Eligibility Reviewers and Reading Committee members. Both positions are given financial compensation for their time, and will receive guidance and administrative support throughout the process.

These roles will take place during November 2013 (deadline for applications is September 15th) and could suit postgraduate students or recent graduates. Further information can be found on the website.
