Commonwealth Shared Scholarships are a joint initiative between the UK government-funded Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and UK universities. Two Scholarships are available for students from Developing Commonwealth Countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the UK.
The Scholarships are available to students holding an offer to study one of the following courses at Cardiff University:
US nationals applying for postgraduate programmes only.
- Fees: Fee waiver of one year's overseas fees
- Stipend: £10,000 for one year
Online via the Institute of International Education (IEE) website.
The US-UK Educational Commission (Fulbright Commission) aims to foster mutual understanding through educational links between the UK and United States. Cardiff University offers its own Fulbright Scholarship for postgraduate students, in partnership with the Fulbright Commission.
There is one Fulbright-Cardiff University scholarship available per academic year. In addition to the Fulbright-Cardiff University Award, Fulbright scholarship holders (i.e. those holding non-specific Fulbright Scholarships) can also apply to Cardiff University as per the normal Fulbright process.
The scholarship holder will receive a fee waiver to the value of one year’s overseas tuition fees, applicable to one year programmes or the first year of a longer master's or PhD programme at Cardiff University. The scholarship holder will also receive a stipend of £10,000 from the Fulbright Commission.
Please note that we do not administer this scholarship, and that all eligibility enquiries and applications should all be directed to the Fulbright Commission directly. For further information, and to apply, please see the Fulbright-Cardiff Award webpage.
