Commonwealth Scholarships

Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) Anniversary Endowment Fund Commonwealth Scholarships allow successful applicants to benefit from the expertise provided by member universities in low and middle income countries around the Commonwealth.

The scheme, which will be expanded from 2019 and become known as the Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships, is majority funded through the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) endowment fund.

The scholarships are not applicable to distance learning courses and applicants must hold a Bachelors degree of at least upper second level to be eligible to apply.
