Commonwealth Scholarships

The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) is aimed at students of Commonwealth countries who can make a significant contribution to their home country after the completion of a higher education programme in the UK.

The CSFP is an annual scheme made available to all the Commonwealth countries by the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission. This is jointly managed by Commonwealth Scholarships Commission, British Council and Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU).

The preliminary selection of candidates is carried out in Mauritius by the Ministry of Education and Human Resources (MOEHR).
