Commonwealth scholarships

The Commonwealth Government provides financial assistance to students through several major scholarship schemes. Commonwealth Scholarships play a major role in this exchange of students. Over 29,000 Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows across the Commonwealth have benefited from the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) since 1959.
The normal period of tenure for a Commonwealth scholarship is two years. Each awarding country fixes the value of the awards. Generally it includes fares to an from the awarding country, payments of tuition fees, allowance for books, special clothing and local travel and a personal maintenance allowance.

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United Kingdom (CSC) is responsible for managing Britain’s contribution to the CSFP.

The objective of the scholarships is to enable Commonwealth students of high intellectual promise to pursue studies in Commonwealth countries other than their own so that on their return home they could make a distinctive contribution to life in their own countries and to mutual understanding in the Commonwealth.
