The Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarship is only for the students who want to study more and secure good jobs. A number of students who are unable to get admission in foreign universities can complete their education by sitting at home. The only thing you require is to pay attention and regularly studying all the lectures. Although, the online or the distance education does not need so much financial resources, but there are also some students that are unable to pay these fees and they need to get higher education. This scholarship is for Masters Degree Programs. As this scholarship is for the online programs therefore, students from any country can apply for this scholarship.
This scholarship program starts in September 2013. The scholarship funds are provided with the cooperation of two or more universities only to support the students who are unable to pay the educational fee.
