Description

The Commonwealth Scholarship scheme is aimed specifically at students from disadvantaged backgrounds across the Commonwealth. By funding postgraduate studies in a range of different study formats, it helps to support innovators and leaders of the future. This historic award is the UK’s primary scholarship scheme focused on supporting British international development goals. It is designed to attract outstanding talent to UK universities whilst also supporting sustainable development overseas.
