More than 30,000 Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships have been awarded since the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan was set up in 1959. As the CSC’s alumni association began in 2000, we are still trying to locate and invite a number of untraced alumni – particularly Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows from the early years. Only registered alumni members are able to enjoy membership benefits.

The CSC is currently tracing former Commonwealth Scholars from Canada with whom we have lost touch. Can you help?

  • View our full list of CSC alumni from Canada – anyone who is not marked as ‘traced’ is someone who we want to contact.
  • If you have held a Commonwealth Scholarship but are not already a member of our alumni association, download and complete our alumni registration form (editable PDF) and email it to
  • If you recognise a name on the alumni list that is not marked as ‘traced’, ask them to get in touch with the CSC by emailing You could also forward them a link to our alumni membership page, where our registration form can be downloaded.
