Directory of Commonwealth Scholars updated for 2016

The Directory of Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows has been updated to include 2015 Scholars and Fellows who have studied in the UK. The Directory now contains the names of over 34,000 individuals from across the Commonwealth who have benefited from the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan since it began in 1959. In addition, there are also nearly 7,000 profiles detailing the careers and achievements of our alumni. The Directory is searchable via country of origin, year of award, and surname.

Commenting on the updated Directory, James Phillips, Senior Alumni Engagement Officer at the CSC, said ‘I am pleased that our Scholars finishing this summer have now been added to the Directory and join the expanding community of Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows spread all across the world. Being included in the Directory is recognition of the hard work undertaken by our award holders to win this prestigious scholarship.

‘I am also particularly grateful to the nearly 7,000 alumni who have consented for their employment information to be included, so that current and future Scholars can see what our alumni have gone on to achieve. I hope that all alumni continue to keep in touch with us as they progress through their careers. We aim to showcase their achievements and spread the word about Commonwealth Scholarships so that we can ensure the best and brightest nominations from the next generation.’

If you had a Commonwealth Scholarship but do not have a career profile, we may not have consent to include your details. The Directory will next be updated in late 2017. If you would like to provide your consent for your profile to appear, or to advise us of any changes to your details, please contact the CSC Alumni Team, including your full name (and your surname during your award, if it has changed since), level and subject of study, host institution, and year of award in your message.
