SCHOLARSHIP ALERT: Selection Interview For
Commonwealth Scholarship Date Announced.
The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship
Plan (CSFP) is an international programme under
which member governments offer scholarships
and fellowships to citizens of other
Commonwealth countries. The CSFP was
established at the first Commonwealth education
conference in 1959 and is reviewed by education
ministers at their triennial meetings – the only
scholarship scheme in the world to receive such
high-level recognition.

The CSFP was set up to provide a framework
through which any Commonwealth government
could offer scholarships or career development
opportunities to citizens of other Commonwealth
countries. The five main principles of the Plan,
laid down at the time of its formation, are that it
would:
be distinct and additional to any other
schemes
be based on mutual cooperation and the
sharing of educational experience among all
Commonwealth countries
be flexible, to take account of changing needs
over time
be Commonwealth-wide, and based on a
series of bilateral arrangements between
home and host countries
recognise and promote the highest level of
intellectual achievement

It is for each individual country to decide
whether to offer awards and, if so, what type of
awards. For many years, awards were focused on
postgraduate Scholarships – at both Master’s
and doctoral level – with some undergraduate
awards and mid-career Academic Fellowships.
Since 2000, however, there has been greater
diversity, including the introduction of Distance
Learning Scholarships, Post-Doctoral Fellowships,
undergraduate exchange, and short Professional
Fellowships. See Countries offering awards for
details of what awards are available at the
moment.
