You must use the Electronic Application System (EAS) to apply for a Commonwealth Scholarship. The EAS allows you to submit your application electronically and to download and save your application in PDF format (which can then be printed in hard copy).

You must also:

  1. Check whether or not your Nominating Agency will be processing your application electronically. If so, you will be able to follow the progress of your application. There are three options available to Nominating Agencies – further details
  2. Print and send your application to your Nominating Agency, whether or not your Nominating Agency will be processing your application electronically.
  3. Wait when you have clicked on Submit at the end of your application. It can take up to three minutes for your application to be transferred to your Nominating Agency.
  4. Wait while downloading a PDF of your application. These PDFs can be up to 2 MB in size.
  5. Let your referees know in advance that they will each receive an email inviting them to complete their references electronically. This email is generated as soon as you submit your application.

Before you start your application, you should read the step-by-step guide on How to apply for a Commonwealth Master’s Scholarship (1.0 MB) and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Applicants (206 KB).

The application form has links to the Notes for Candidates to help you as well.

All applications must be submitted by 23.59 (GMT) on 22 February 2018 at the latest.

You are advised to complete and submit your application as soon as possible, as the EAS will be very busy in the days leading up to the application deadline.
