Overview

Commonwealth Shared Scholarships are offered in partnership with select UK universities.

Purpose: Funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO)  Commonwealth Shared Scholarships enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development, and are aimed at those who could not otherwise afford to study in the UK.

Intended beneficiaries: Commonwealth Shared Scholarships are for candidates from least developed and lower-middle-income Commonwealth countries, to undertake full-time Master’s study on selected courses at a UK university.

These scholarships are offered under six development themes.

How to apply

You must apply for your scholarship to be tenable at one of the following approved courses at a participating UK university.

You can apply for more than one course and to more than one university through the Commonwealth Shared Scholarships Scheme, but you may only accept one offer of a Shared Scholarship. Note these awards are only for Master’s courses and not for undergraduate or PhD study.

You must also secure admission to your course in addition to applying for a Shared Scholarship. Please check with your chosen university for their specific advice on when to apply, admission requirements and rules for applying.

You must make your application using the CSC’s online application system, in addition to any other application that you are required to complete by your nominating body. The CSC will not accept any applications that are not submitted via the online application system.
