Please note that the CSC can only accept applications for Professional Fellowships from organisations in the UK who have set up a programme and identified a Fellow or Fellows who they wish to nominate. The CSC does not accept direct applications from candidates and cannot provide a list of UK organisations that are willing to host Fellowships.
Candidates should note that 2013 applications for Commonwealth Professional Fellowships will be judged on the following criteria:
- the extent to which the proposed Fellowship will ensure the transfer of skills relevant to the needs of a Commonwealth developing country
- the extent to which those skills will lead to practical benefits for the developing country following the Fellowship
- the extent to which the Fellowship will have a ‘catalytic effect’, either within the developing country concerned, or in establishing new relationships with the UK
See Selection criteria for 2013 Commonwealth Professional Fellowships for further details.
How to apply
Prospective Professional Fellows who are nominated by a UK organisation will be asked to complete the Electronic Application System (EAS).
The closing date for applications for 2013 (Round 2) Commonwealth Professional Fellowships is 23.59 (GMT) on 31 May 2013. Candidates should liaise with their nominating organisation to agree a deadline to complete the EAS, so that the organisation can submit the full application by the closing date.
