The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan was drawn up at the First Commonwealth Education Conference held at Oxford in 1959. The general basis of the Plan is that those Commonwealth governments which are able to do so should institute Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships to be held by men and women from other Commonwealth countries at universities and other institutions of higher learning in the awarding country. The progress and development of the scheme have been reviewed at successive Commonwealth Education Conferences at New Delhi in 1962, Ottawa in 1964, Lagos in 1968, Canberra in 1971, Kingston in 1974 and Accra in 1977.
