Development impact and the PhD scholarship: making the most of your scholarship

The Development Module is the cornerstone of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission’s commitment to improving the development impact of its scholarship programme. This exciting programme aims to enhance and expand the PhD scholarship experience and will empower researchers to make an impact, both in their own careers and in the wider community.

The programme will be offered through two residential workshops, one early in the PhD programme and one towards the end of the study period. The training provided will ensure that Scholars are equipped to address development challenges, providing the opportunity to collaborate and share resources and practice with fellow researchers.

The ‘Road Map’ is the first workshop of the programme to take place in the first year of the PhD. It explores:

  • International development issues and the changing perspectives on development.
  • The current situation in international development, including understanding key themes and development programmes in the UK and globally.
  • Personal development plan – exploring the development statement from the Commonwealth Scholarship application to propose a plan for activities to support development objectives during the PhD award.
