Commonwealth Professional Fellowships (2021/22)

Commonwealth Professional Fellowships (2021/22)

The aim of the Commonwealth Professional Fellowships is to provide professionals with the opportunity to enhance knowledge and skills in their given sector, and to have catalytic effects on their workplaces. Mid-career professionals from low- and middle-income countries will spend a period of time at a UK Host organisation working in their sector for a programme of professional development.

All Commonwealth Professional Fellowships in the 2021/22 round are in the thematic area of Girls’ Education.
