About Commonwealth Scholarship 2022

Commonwealth Master’s Scholarships, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), enable outstanding and motivated we aim students to achieve the knowledge and skills essential for sustainable development and at those who could not study in the UK otherwise.

Beneficiaries Expected: Commonwealth Master’s Scholarships are available to students from low- and middle-income Commonwealth nations who wish to pursue a full-time taught Master’s degree at a UK university.

How to Apply

The CSC does not accept direct applications for these scholarships, thus you must first apply to one of the following nominating organisations.

The major avenue for applications is through national nominating agencies.

Various non-governmental and philanthropic organizations

Also, each nominating organization is in charge of its own selection procedure, which may include extra eligibility requirements. Check with your nominating body for detailed application guidelines and restrictions, as well as their own qualifying criteria and application deadlines.

Besides many other applications necessary by your nominating authority, you must submit your application through the CSC’s online application system. Any applications that are not submitted through the CSC’s online application system will be rejected.

At least two personal references must be submitted directly to the online application system by the referees (referees will be emailed request to submit online)

The CSC will not accept supporting material submitted by nominated agencies or outside the online application system.
