Commonwealth Scholarship Plan - United Kingdom

Competition: Closed for the 2017-2018 academic year

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK (CSC) offers scholarships to Canadians for graduate study at the PhD level at a university in the United Kingdom (UK). These awards are funded by the United Kingdom Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in conjunction with UK universities.

Two scholarship options are available:

  1. Scholarship for full-time PhD study at a UK university; and  
  2. Scholarship for Split-site PhD study (one year scholarship at a UK university as part of a PhD being undertaken at a Canadian university).

Eligible applicants must be Canadian citizens permanently residing in Canada and must be able to commence their study in the UK by the start of the UK academic year (September/October). Please note that the CSC does not offer scholarships to Canadians who have already started their PhD study in the UK.
