The University of Cambridge, therefore, through the Cambridge Trust, offers a large number of scholarships for study at all levels, and these financial aid for international students are in order to provide financial support for those on undergraduate or graduate degree courses at Cambridge.

The Cambridge Trust has opened its application window for all scholarships, and we recommend that you read this page carefully and also browse all relevant official web pages (link to it is below) before choosing your subject and degree, and before submitting your application.

Cambridge Trust Scholarships (Undergraduate & Postgraduate)

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.
  • To find out more about your fee status, see information on the University’s web pages for undergraduates and for postgraduates.
  • 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).
Important Notes:
1). 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.

2). The Trust will not normally support students at a degree level that is the same as, or lower than, a degree they already hold, with two exceptions – we will consider an application from a student who is required to take a second Masters degree at Cambridge in order to gain admission to the PhD here, or from an international (non-EU) student who is proposing to study as an affiliated student at Cambridge for a second BA degree.

3). The Trust does not have scholarships available for post-doctoral positions, or for visiting or exchange students.

4). The Trust does not have scholarships available for part-time postgraduate degrees, and part-time undergraduate study is not available at the University of Cambridge.

The Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust was established on 1 August 2013. It is an Exempt Charity formed from the merger of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and the Cambridge Overseas Trust, both established as charities by the University of Cambridge in the 1980s in order to provide financial support for international students on degree courses at Cambridge. The Trust is based at 53–54 Sidney Street in central Cambridge.

The University of Cambridge (informally Cambridge University) is a collegiate public research university in Cambridge, England. Founded in 1209 and granted a royal charter by King Henry III in 1231, Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's third-oldest surviving university. It grew out of an association of scholars who left the University of Oxford after a dispute with the townspeople. The two medieval universities share many common features and are often referred to jointly as "Oxbridge".

Application Deadline: 6 Dec 2017 || 4 Jan 2018
