CommonWealth Scholarship Scholarships

      • Fellowship Scholarship by CommonWealth Scholarship

      • Commonwealth Medical Fellowships are for mid-career medical staff from low and middle income countries, to enhance their clinical skills.

        Funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), Commonwealth Medical Fellowships enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development. These fellowships are offered under one of the CSC’s six themes:

        1. Science and technology for development
        2. Strengthening health systems and capacity
        3. Promoting global prosperity
        4. Strengthening global peace, security and governance
        5. Strengthening resilience and response to crises
        6. Access, inclusion and opportunity
The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK (CSC) provides the main UK government scholarship scheme led by international development objectives. The CSC is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for International Development (DFID). The CSC operates within the framework of the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) and is a vivid demonstration of the UK’s enduring commitment to the Commonwealth. By supporting innovators and leaders of the future from across the Commonwealth, and by attracting outstanding talent to Britain’s universities, our work combines sustainable development with the UK national interest. We use rigorous procedures to ensure that our programmes promote equity and inclusion, reward merit, and deliver widespread access, especially to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. DFID is our lead department and main sponsor, funding awards exclusively for candidates from low and middle income countries. We also receive financial contributions from the Department for Education (DfE), for scholarships for candidates from high income countries, and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), for fellowships for postdoctoral researchers.
