Commonwealth Undergraduate Scholarships

Commonwealth Undergraduate Scholarships are for candidates from St Helena, for full-time undergraduate study at a UK university. St Helena has no undergraduate degree provision.

Funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), Commonwealth Undergraduate Scholarships enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development, and are aimed at those who could not otherwise afford to study in the UK.

These scholarships are offered under six themes:

  • Science and technology for development
  • Strengthening health systems and capacity
  • Promoting global prosperity
  • Strengthening global peace, security and governance
  • Strengthening resilience and response to crises
  • Access, inclusion and opportunity

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • To apply for these scholarships, you must:
    • Be a citizen of or have been granted refugee status by St Helena
    • Be permanently resident in St Helena
    • Be available to start your academic studies in the UK by the start of the UK academic year in September/October 2019
    • Be unable to afford to study in the UK without this scholarship
