About ScholarshipCommonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme

Without these awards they would not otherwise have been able to benefit from UK higher education.

For 2014 69 universities have offered to support the scholarships by contributing the stipend for the students from their own resources, or those which the university has been able to generate from elsewhere. See list of participating universities from the CSS prospective 2015 below.
