Applications are open for the Chevening Gurukul Fellowship for Leadership and Excellence. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) flagship fellowship for future Indian leaders is aimed at high-flying, mid-career professionals from different backgrounds.

Twelve fellows are selected each year with strong leadership qualities. The intensive, 12-week fully-funded residential course is conducted at the University of Oxford’s department of politics and international relations.

The fellowship addresses issues faced by leaders in all fields and explores changing ideas and practices in leadership, looking at the implications of globalisation for Indian leaders.

Chevening is the UK government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders.

Funded by the FCO and partner organisations, Chevening offers two types of awards – Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships. Launched in 1983, the awards are offered in over 160 countries. There are over 46,000 Chevening alumni in the world and over 2,300 in India.

Applications for the programme are open until March 27, 2017. Apply online here.
