Applicants may now apply for the Commonwealth scholarships which are bestowed to candidates who want to study in the United Kingdom. The scholarships are designated for the 2018/2019 Academic Year.
The scholarship is a fully funded one and it offers up to eighteen masters and eleven PhD degrees which is quite generous.
There are several criteria that every prospective candidate should fulfil in order to be eligible for the scholarship:

The goal of the scholarships is to help you contribute the most to your country.
