Mid-career professionals from low and middle-income Commonwealth countries now have the chance to embark on a transformative journey of professional development in the United Kingdom.

With six development themes to choose from, spanning various sectors such as Science and technology for development, Strengthening health systems and capacity, Promoting global prosperity, Strengthening global peace, security, and governance, Strengthening resilience and response to crises, and Access, inclusion, and opportunity, candidates can find the perfect fit for their professional aspirations.

Additionally, applicants are required to have a minimum of five years of full-time, or equivalent part-time, relevant work experience in a profession related to the subject of the fellowship programme.
