The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission offers Scholarships for PhD candidates from low and middle-income Commonwealth countries to spend 12 months at a UK university as part of their doctoral studies in their home country.

The scholarships are for study starting in October 2020 and are aimed at 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.

Split-site scholarships are delivered through an existing institutional or departmental link between the candidate’s home university and proposed UK university.

The closing date for applications is 6 November 2019.
