On behalf of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) in the UK, the British Council recently organised a pre-departure briefing for departing Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows for 2017-18 at the auditorium of the British Council Dhaka University branch.
Towhidur Rahman, Regional Manager, Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP), South Asia conducted the briefing which was attended by 45 brilliant scholars and fellows from around Bangladesh and three Commonwealth Scholarship alumni who conducted short sessions on various academic skills that would be most useful for the scholars during their study in the UK. The scholars engaged in a range of back and forth questions relating to issues of visa, accommodation, medical facilities, food and spices, etc.
The British Council and University Grants Commission in Bangladesh have been supporting this scholarship under Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) in coordination with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) under the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) UK, who administers the fellowship program on behalf of the UK government. Students aspiring to apply for a Commonwealth Scholarship are encouraged to contact University Grants Commission, Bangladesh, or visit British Council website (http://www.britishcouncil.org.bd/en/commonwealth-scholarship-and-fellowship-plan-csfp) for information.
