Publications and Resources


The CSC is committed to better understanding both the experiences and impact of Commonwealth Scholars and Alumni as well as developing its knowledge and expertise in the wider field of scholarship evaluation. Alongside the survey framework and data analysis the E&M programme regularly reviews elements of the CSC’s portfolio of programmes as well as undertaking projects exploring specific areas of research interest and different evaluation approaches. A crucial part of this work is working with Scholars and Alumni and providing feedback to our various stakeholders and partners as well as learning from and engaging with internal and external colleagues through conferences and workshops.  Further information can be found below:
