Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarship 2025 (Fully Funded)

Applications are invited for the Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarship 2025 for citizens of Commonwealth member states for the 2025 academic session. The Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships (QECS)  offer a unique opportunity to study for a two-year Master’s degree in a low- or middle-income Commonwealth country.

Each year, there are two opportunities to apply for QECS: cycle 1 opens in November/December and cycle 2 opens in March/April. You only need to submit one application, but you are welcome to apply more than once if there is another country you are interested in studying in.

A wide range of academic subjects is offered under a Commonwealth Master’s scholarship. The scholarships are named in honor of Her Majesty The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, and fully funded and supported by several commonwealth governments.
