The Commonwealth Secretary-General has launched a new scholarship at the King Henry VIII College in Selangor, Malaysia.

One of the first recipients was 16-year-old Scot Choo, the son of a pilot who died when Malaysian plane MH17 was shot down over Ukraine in 2014. Secretary-General Patricia Scotland officially presented Choo with his award.
She said she was proud to see that the scholarship is open to all Commonwealth students, in line with Commonwealth values supporting mobility between member states. The Secretary-General told the audience the first Commonwealth Conference of Education Ministers in Oxford in 1959 outlined many reasons for supporting student mobility:
enabling students to study subjects not available in their own countries
extending the choice of subjects for students from small countries
strengthening comparative and international studies
broadening the outlook of home students
