Applications for the Chevening Gurukul Scholarships – the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s premium scholarship scheme for India at LSE -- are open until March 1 2013.

The 12-week course will include project work, academic courses, field visits, seminars, debates and interactions with some of the world’s most influential thinkers and decision makers.

“Those selected will play a critical role in making the UK-India partnership stronger, wider and deeper,” said James Bevan, the British High Commissioner to India.

The LSE programme is tailored to equip high-flying Indian professionals in mid-career with new skills and perspectives so that they can spot, seize and shape opportunities in the complex and inter-connected world in which we all live, he added.

The course will run between late September and mid December 2013 and is targeted at mid-career professionals with a minimum of 5 years work experience, proven academic ability and leadership skills.

The application is open only for Indian passport holders who meet the specified eligibility criteria

The Chevening programme began in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international scheme supporting professionals from around 116 countries worldwide except for the US and the EU.

The UK government’s global scholarship programme is funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations.
