    I got an update My award has been confirmed by CSC and I have been directed to get in touch with a contact person at a local british council in my country to help with visa application and pre-departure briefing. I was told that the hard copy of the award confirmation letter has been despatched and this I wld use for the visa processing.

    Anyone else with an update?
    Congratulations Kosb ! Wish you all the best. Still waiting for the confirmation over here.

    Jst a repetition of the obvious...the award content and parties involved, a list of other commonwealth scholars and their contacts in the UK (some in a related field,some from my school and some from my country) that wld help wit some advice as to what to expect, lastly an Invitation to the commonwealth scholars get together that wld happen sometime in November at Nottingham University.

    Thanks a lot.. I wll let you know of any update about my award letter... There is a Ghanaian shared scholar coming to Cambridge with you. Her name is Deborah Seyram Fiatui, though I have not been in contact with her. But I believe she should receive her award letter too since you are in the same university.

    hi kosb,
    congrats on your award.just curios,what is the value of the stipend for 2015-2016 because it appears the amount is adjusted upwards each year. last year i.e 2014-15 was 977 for those outside London and 1208 for those within London. this is set by the UK government for all awardees on UK government funded scholarship programmes.
