Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships 2024 |Fully Funded

The Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships (QECS) provide a unique opportunity to pursue a two-year Master’s degree in a low- or middle-income Commonwealth country.

The scholarships are aimed at students who are committed to making a difference in their communities. They provide a life-changing opportunity to experience a new country and culture, broaden horizons, and build a global network that will last a lifetime.

Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholars help to bring about positive change and find solutions to the shared challenges they face, both in their home countries and in those that host them. As active members of the Commonwealth network, scholars will help shape its future.


  1. Citizens (or those who hold refugee status) in a Commonwealth country are welcome to apply.
  2. Applicants must apply for a QECS award in a country other than their home country/country of citizenship. Refugees should apply as if they were a citizen of the country that has offered them refugee status.

  4. You must have attained a minimum of 2:1 (or equivalent) at undergraduate level to be eligible to apply.
