Commonwealth scholarship awards scheme assists students of excellent academic calibre from developing Commonwealth countries who would benefit from higher education in the United Kingdom, to the developmental advantage of their home countries, but who, for financial reasons, are unable to study in Britain and are outside the scope of other British Government Support Schemes.
The awards include air fares to and from Belfast, tuition fees and a maintenance allowance.
Queen’s University will assist award-holders in finding accommodation, but students are responsible for covering this out of their maintenance allowance.
