Commonwealth Scholarships is a scholarship scheme that enables students from Commonwealth countries to study in other Commonwealth countries. The scheme has been helping students to develop their education since 1959. Awards in the UK are funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Department for Education (DFE), in conjunction with UK universities.
The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United Kingdom (CSC) is responsible for managing the United Kingdom’s contribution to Commonwealth Scholarships. CSC awards over 800 scholarships and fellowships for postgraduate study and professional development to Commonwealth citizens each year.
British Council is 'contracted' by the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission to provide overseas services to the Commonwealth Scholarships.
