Mentoring Programme

The CSC’s Mentoring Programme connects Commonwealth Scholars and Alumni to support knowledge and skills development and a practical understanding of how these can be implemented post-scholarship to achieve development impact.

The CSC aims to pair current Scholars with an alumnus working in a related or relevant field to their studies to provide individual advice and guidance during their studies.

Benefits of mentoring

Mentees will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain academic support from an experienced alumnus working in a related or relevant field to their chosen subject
  • Understand how the skills gained during a Commonwealth Scholarship can be implemented to support development impact in their home country
  • Seek advice and support on living and studying in the UK
  • Feel connected to the expertise available through the CSC Alumni community

Mentors will have the opportunity to:

  • Share their expertise and experience to support Scholars in gaining appropriate skills and knowledge to achieve development impact in their home country
  • Work with and learn from Scholars as part of their knowledge and skills development
  • Develop new networks and collaborations
  • Play an important role in developing future leaders and experts in their field

Following a successful application, Mentors and Mentees will be hand-paired based on their responses for a one-year cycle.

How to apply

Applications are now closed and will re-open for 2020/2021 in June 2020.
