About the Scholarship

  • Three Master's degree programmes are available through the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, one of which was nominated by the agency.
  • The UK government's scholarship programme is run by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) and focuses on international development goals. 
  • It operates within CSFP (Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan) guidelines and offers a powerful example of the UK's continuous commitment to the Commonwealth. By luring individuals with extraordinary skills from all backgrounds and real potential and supporting them in becoming leaders and pioneers upon returning to their native countries, the CSC's work integrates sustainable growth with the UK national interest. It creates opportunities for global partnerships and collaboration.
