National agencies

Each Commonwealth government has designated a national agency for the operation of Commonwealth Scholarships. Please contact the national agency in your home country for more information about applying for a Commonwealth Scholarship in another Commonwealth country. Please note, however, that not all national agencies will be invited to nominate candidates for all Commonwealth Scholarships offered.
