Over 31,000 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.
