Over 30,000 Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows have been funded by the UK government through the CSC since 1959. Upon finishing their Scholarship or Fellowship, they join a thriving global community of Commonwealth Alumni, who are working across a range of sectors and fields, effecting real change and development impact at a local, national, and international level.

Your alumni network

You are a Commonwealth Scholar for life, and we hope that you will stay involved with the CSC community as an active alumnus. Through the CSC Alumni Network, you will have the opportunity to build contacts with a diverse range of alumni in your home country and across the Commonwealth, to support your work and help you contribute to sustainable development impact goals.
