The scholarships are fully paid and in areas related to Environment, Food, Health and Technology.
The scholarships are intended to assist students from developing Commonwealth countries who, though of high academic calibre, would not be eligible for other British Government awards to enable them to study in Britain and would not otherwise be able to afford to do so.
The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) administers the scheme on DFID’s behalf.
Under the scheme, the ACU pays the students’ tuition fees, thesis expenses, study travel grant, the cost of airfare to and from the United Kingdom and excess baggage allowance for accompanied books up to 10kg on return home.
The University of Nottingham provides a full maintenance award plus additional allowances.
Students are normally expected to hold a first degree at either first class or upper second class level, should not at present be living or studying in a developed country and should be nationals of (or permanently domiciled in) one of the following developing Commonwealth countries:
Botswana, Cameroon, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia.
Students should normally be under the age of 35 years and should be sufficiently fluent in written and oral English to be able to pursue their proposed studies immediately.
