2013 Commonwealth Professional Fellowships in UK

Deadline: May 31, 2013

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK is inviting applications for Commonwealth Professional Fellowships in 2013 (Round 2) starting between 23 September 2013 and 1 March 2014.. Applications are to be made by the UK host organisation which acts as the ‘nominator’, and which can be from any sector.

Nominators are expected to identify suitable candidates themselves, through existing organisational networks or by advertising if they wish. A nominator may wish to work with a separate UK organisation to actually host the Fellowship(s).

Selection criteria

The 2013 applications for Commonwealth Professional Fellowships will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • the extent to which the proposed Fellowship will ensure the transfer of skills relevant to the needs of a Commonwealth developing country
  • the extent to which those skills will lead to practical benefits for the developing country following the Fellowship
  • the extent to which the Fellowship will have a ‘catalytic effect’, either within the developing country concerned, or in establishing new relationships with the UK
