The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United Kingdom (CSC) is responsible for managing Britain’s contribution to the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP).
The CSC supports around 750 awards annually. Awards are funded by the Department for International Development (for developing Commonwealth countries), and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Scottish Government (for developed Commonwealth countries), in conjunction with UK universities. The CSC also nominates UK citizens for scholarships to study in other Commonwealth countries under the CSFP.
The CSC makes available seven types of award:
Each type of award has its own eligibility criteria and application procedure. Details are available on the CSC’s website.
Please note prospective scholars need to apply through the nominating agency in their home country, not to the CSC directly. The CSC regrets that it is unable to respond to unsolicited applications.
