Commonwealth scholarship honours Queen Elizabeth

A new scheme of scholarships will be available to students of the 53 Commonwealth member nations.

Named in honour of HM The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth these new scholarships will be known as the Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships as of 2019, tying in with the 60th anniversary of the original Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP), which already offers awards to students from across the Commonwealth.

The program – run by the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) – will provide an additional 150 scholarships to students from low and middle-income countries like Ghana, South Africa, and Sri Lanka by 2025.
