Applications are called for Commonwealth Shared Scholarships 2016 for Post graduate and doctoral programmes in UK. The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK (CSC) awards over 900 scholarships and fellowships for postgraduate study and professional development to Commonwealth citizens each year.

The CSC aims to contribute to the UK’s international development aims and wider overseas interests, support excellence in UK higher education, and sustain the principles of the Commonwealth. Candidates are selected on the basis of merit and their potential to contribute to the needs of their home countries.

Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships in the UK are funded by the Department for International Development (for developing Commonwealth countries), and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Scottish Government (for developed Commonwealth countries), in conjunction with UK universities.

  • Candidates need to submit applications directly to the course offering Universities. UK Universities excel in new emerging courses, cutting edge research and practicability of courses. Environmental change, food safety, international relations, public safety, leadership and management, international journalism, international planning and development, energy and society, clinical nutrition and health, design and environment, Globalisation, Business and Development, Governance and Development, Environmental Politics, Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology, animal welfare, sustainable agriculture, etc are some of the emerging areas considered for scholarships.
