International programme Bursary 2014

What are Commonwealth Bursary and Fellowships?

The Commonwealth Bursary and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) is an international programme under which member governments offer Bursaries and fellowships to citizens of other Commonwealth countries. The CSFP was established at the first Commonwealth education conference in 1959, and over 26,000 individuals have benefited.

The Commonwealth Bursary Commission in the United Kingdom (CSC) is responsible for managing Britain’s contribution to the CSFP.

The CSC supports around 700 awards annually. Awards are funded by the Department for International Development, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Scottish Government, in conjunction with UK universities. The CSC also nominates UK citizens for Bursaries to study in other Commonwealth countries under the CSFP.

The CSC makes available seven types of award:

    • Bursaries for PhD research
    • Bursaries for Master’s study
    • Shared Bursary with UK universities in support of Master’s programmes
    • Academic Fellowships for staff serving in developing country universities
    • Split-site Bursaries for PhD students to spend up to one year in the UK
    • Professional Fellowships for mid-career professionals in developing countries
    • Distance Learning Bursaries for developing country students to study UK Master’s degree courses while living in their own countries

What financial support does the plan offer?
The Bursaries and fellowships cover most costs associated with your study/time in the UK. This can include, where appropriate, return airfares, tuition fees, maintenance costs, study and other allowances. The terms and conditions of each type of Bursary and fellowship vary.

What courses does the plan cover?
Commonwealth Bursaries for Master’s and PhD study are available for postgraduate study at any UK university which has a funding agreement with the CSC. Commonwealth Split-site Bursaries support candidates who are undertaking PhD study at a university in their home country to spend up to one year at a UK university as part of their academic work. Awards are not limited to specific courses, but candidates must be able to demonstrate that their proposed study will develop leadership potential (for candidates from developed Commonwealth countries) or have a development impact on their home countries (for candidates from developing Commonwealth countries).

Commonwealth Shared Bursaries are offered to developing country students who would not otherwise be able to study in the UK, for specific Master’s degree courses.

Commonwealth Distance Learning Bursaries allow developing country students to study UK Master’s degree courses while living in their own countries. The Bursaries are available for specific courses selected by the CSC on the basis of their quality and relevance to development.

Commonwealth Bursaries are also available for undergraduate study for citizens of the Falkland Islands, the Maldives, St Helena and the Seychelles only.

Commonwealth Academic Fellowships provide mid-career staff in developing country universities with the opportunity to network and update knowledge and skills related to their academic subject and responsibilities.

Commonwealth Professional Fellowships offer mid-career professionals from developing Commonwealth countries the opportunity to spend a period (typically three months) with a UK host organisation working in a relevant field.

Who is eligible to apply?
The eligibility criteria for each type of scholarship and fellowship vary. More information is available on the CSC website.

How and when do you apply?

Recipients of the bursary will be required to teach at a school or provincial education department for the same number of years that they receive the bursary. Qualified recipients of the bursary can apply for appropriate public school positions with the provincial education department (PED) of their choice. The PED concerned will determine whether there is a suitable post available. If there is not, the applicant will be offered employment in a PED that does have suitable vacancies.

Applicants for the bursary must already have been accepted into an appropriate study programme at a recognized higher education institution.

The bursary will only be awarded if one of the priority area specialization subjects is included as a teaching subject in your qualification.

Please note that those who already have other teaching qualifications do not qualify for this programme.

R2bn in FET bursaries from Department of Higher Education and Training

The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) has set aside almost R2-billion in bursaries for further education and training (FET) college students for this year, Higher Education and Training Minister Dr Blade Nzimande said on Monday.

Nedbank bursary opportunities for 2014

Speaking at an event to declare 2013 the Year of the Artisan, Nzimande reiterated the need for South Africa to increase the number of qualified and competent artisans to enable the country to successfully deliver on its strategic infrastructure projects (SIPs).

“Government views the production of artisans and other mid-level skills as a priority, and that is why we are investing all these billions into the development of our FET colleges to turn them into institutions of choice, so that we will not have to import skills from other countries to deliver on our SIPs,” the Minister commented.

The R2-billion in funding is a significant increase on the R310-million in funding made available in 2009.

Nzimande further stressed the need to improve the status and profile of artisan trades.

“The idea that trades and other vocational programmes are only for those who can’t get into university, is deeply ingrained in our society and has a detrimental effect on our ability to develop the skills required by our labour market, not to mention the status of those who make a very important contribution to our economy and society,” he stated.

As part of the Year of the Artisan initiative, the DHET would work towards changing that perception and ensuring that FET colleges and the training programmes they offer, become the “options of choice” among South Africa’s youth.

Higher Education and Training Deputy Minister Mduduzi Manana would lead an initiative to promote artisanry as a career option for the youth across all provinces.
