The Cambridge Trust awards approximately 500 scholarships annually, and supports between 1,100 and 1,400 students in residence each year from 85 countries across the world. During its history of over 30 years of offering scholarships at the University of Cambridge, the Trust has awarded a total of nearly 19,000 scholarships to international students.
All scholarships are available only for study at the University of Cambridge, and require that you apply to the University via the normal online application form, and most scholarships require that you apply by the relevant deadline.
The application deadline for the 2020 entry is 15 October 2019, 6.00 pm (UK time).
However, there are some exceptions. If you are applying for undergraduate study and wish to be interviewed in China, Malaysia or Singapore, the deadline is 20 September 2019.
If you are applying for graduate study, please check and apply by the specific course deadline. There will be two general course deadlines of 3 December 2019 and 7 January 2020.
Please apply by the relevant deadline set for entry to your particular course and complete the ‘Funding’ section in the online Applicant Portal in order to be considered for funding.
There will be no differential of deadlines for application between UK or EU or International graduate applicants.
These are guidelines on eligibility for scholarships that are available from the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust:
All students, irrespective of nationality, are eligible to be considered for funding by the Trust.
The Trust does not accept applications from students who are part-way through a course at Cambridge, unless they are applying for funding towards a higher degree course following graduation.
Applicants must be intending to start a course at the level of undergraduate (excluding UK/EU applicants), Masters (such as MPhil, MASt, LLM), or research postgraduate (such as PhD).
Please note that the Trust does not offer many scholarships to students on undergraduate courses, and has many more scholarship programmes available to postgraduate students. Approximately 85% of the scholarships awarded each year are to students taking Masters or PhD degrees.
