Application process


In April 2018 the University of Sheffield hosted the Chevening workshop with the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures. We invited all the Chevening Scholars in the UK to attend sessions on what sustainability means and how it can be applied in every day life. You can read more about the event here.
