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 ‘Tool Kit’ is the second residential workshop, delivered towards the end of the PhD award, which focuses on:

  • Understanding current issues and future trends in international development
  • Managing development projects and partnerships – effective ways to prepare proposals and secure resources from development assistance institutions.
  • Personal development strategy – sessions to discuss and revise the ‘development plan’, enabling Scholars to work effectively with development institutions, nationally and internationally, on their return home.
