Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships (QECS) 2025

Deadline: 24th of May, 2024

The Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships for 2025 are now accepting applications (QECS). The Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships (QECS) provide a special chance to pursue a two-year Master’s degree in a Commonwealth nation with a low or moderate income.

The scholarships are a life-changing chance for students who are dedicated to making a difference in their communities. They provide the chance to go to a new nation and experience its culture, widen their perspectives, and establish a lifelong worldwide network.

Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholars work to solve global problems and effect good change in both their host countries and their own via scholarly cooperation and cross-cultural engagement. Scholars will actively participate in shaping the Commonwealth network’s future.

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.
