Commonwealth Split-Site Scholarships 2022

About COMMONWEALTH SPLIT-SITE SCHOLARSHIPS (FOR LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES)

 

Overview

 

Funded by the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Commonwealth Split-site Scholarships enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development, and are aimed at those who could not otherwise afford to study in the UK.

 

Purpose: To widen access to UK equipment and expertise for high quality doctoral candidates from low- and middle-income Commonwealth countries, and to contribute to UK and Commonwealth higher education and research through collaboration and partnerships.

 

Intended beneficiaries: High-quality graduates whose proposed research has a developmental focus and who have the potential to become influential teachers or researchers in their home countries.

 

Commonwealth Split-site Scholarships are offered under six CSC Development themes.

 

Eligibility

 

To apply for these fellowships, prospective Host organisations must:

 

• Be a citizen of or have been granted refugee status by an eligible Commonwealth country, or be a British Protected Person

 

• Be permanently resident in an eligible Commonwealth country

 

• Be registered for a PhD at a university in an eligible Commonwealth country by the time your scholarship is confirmed (September 2022)

 

• Ensure that an institutional or departmental link exists between your home university and your proposed UK university. This link must be greater than simply a collaboration between individuals – see section on ‘Tenure and placement’ for further details. Both supervisors must provide a supporting statement which provides further details of the link to ensure your application is eligible.

 

• Be available to start your academic studies in the UK by September 2022

 

• By December 2022, hold a first degree of at least upper second class (2:1) honours standard, or a second-class degree and a relevant postgraduate qualification (usually a Master’s degree)

 

• Be unable to afford to study in the UK without this scholarship

 

The CSC aims to identify talented individuals who have the potential to make change. We are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and non-discrimination and encourage applications from a diverse range of candidates. For further information on the support available to fellows with a disability, see the CSC disability support statement.

 

Value

 

Each fellowship provides:

 

• Approved airfare from your home country to the UK and return at the end of your award (the CSC will not reimburse the cost of fares for dependants, nor the cost of journeys made before your award is confirmed)

 

• Approved tuition fees

 

• Stipend (living allowance) at the rate of £1,133 per month, or £1,3909 per month for those at universities in the London metropolitan area (rates quoted at 2021-2022 levels)

 

• Warm clothing allowance, where applicable

 

• Study travel grant towards the cost of study-related travel within the UK or overseas

 

• If you are widowed, divorced, or a single parent, child allowance of £485 per month for the first child, and £120 per month for the second and third child under the age of 16, if you are accompanied by your children and they are living with you at the same address in the UK

 

The CSC’s family allowances are intended to be only a contribution towards the cost of maintaining your family in the UK. The true costs are likely to be considerably higher, and you must be able to supplement these allowances to support any family members who come to the UK with you.

 

For more information, see the Handbook for Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows

 

How to apply

 

You should apply to study at a UK university which has a part funding agreement with the CSC. Part funding agreements are at the discretion of individual universities. For a list of universities that have agreed to part fund Commonwealth Scholarships, visit the UK universities with part funding agreements page on the CSC website.

 

You must make your application directly to the CSC using the CSC’s online application system. The CSC will not accept any applications that are not submitted via the CSC’s online application system.

 

Applications are currently open and will close on Thursday 17 February at 18:00 (GMT).
