Apply for 2017 Commonwealth Scholarship

Applications are now open for 17 Commonwealth Scholarships at ACU member institutions in Bangladesh, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Pakistan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, and at the University of the West Indies. These Commonwealth Scholarships enable successful applicants to benefit from the expertise available at universities in low and middle income countries around the world. They are funded primarily by the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan endowment fund.

A wide range of subject areas are available and the scholarships are fully funded, including tuition fees, a return economy flight, an arrival allowance, and a regular stipend. Applications from students and graduates of ACU member universities are warmly encouraged.
