10:30 - 20:00

Central Hall Westminster

The Welcome Programme is an important event in the Commonwealth Scholarships calendar, and the only occasion on which we bring together so many award holders. The 2014 event took place at Central Hall, Westminster and Durbar Court, Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London.

The event is an exciting opportunity for new award holders to celebrate their scholarships and meet around 300 other Scholars and Fellows based around the UK. A lively programme of activities takes place during the day, rounding off with a formal reception in the evening.

The 2014 Welcome Programme featured speeches from Professor Tim Unwin, Chair, Commonwealth Scholarship Commission; Deodat Maharaj, Deputy Secretary-General (Economic & Social Development) Secretary-General’s Office, Commonwealth Secretariat; and Paul Arkwright, Director of Multilateral Policy, Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The conference also promoted networking through group discussion sessions, which considered the ways in which we can measure the impact of our awards, as well as encouraging networking through sessions led by the Regional Network Coordinators.
