Commonwealth Scholarship Plan - United Kingdom

Competition: Closed for the 2016-2017 academic year

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

Applicants may apply for either full-time doctoral study at a UK institution or for split-site study where the scholarship applies towards one year’s study 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.

For full details of the award and the Electronic Application System, please visit the website for the Commonwealth Scholarship for PhD and split-site PhD study.
