University of Cambridge scholarships

The University of Cambridge offers a large number of scholarships each year, and outline information is available on the website of the Graduate Admissions website.

Please download and complete the Cambridge Trust 2016/17 application form (.docx) if you wish to apply for a scholarship from one of the Cambridge Trusts (Gates Cambridge Trust, Cambridge Overseas Trust and Cambridge Commonwealth Trust). You will then be considered for all the awards offered by the Cambridge Trusts for which you are eligible. Further information is available at Gates Cambridge Scholarships and Cambridge Trusts.

Please note that the deadline for applying for Cambridge Trusts scholarships is early in the admissions cycle and it is therefore essential that you apply to the MBA/MFin early if you wish to be considered for these scholarships.

The Trusts' deadline for new US applicants is 14 October 2015, and the deadline for non-US applicants (and US applicants currently studying at Cambridge) is 2 December 2015.

Applications for the Cambridge Trusts scholarships can only be made at the same time or after submitting your MBA/MFin application.

While we aim to ensure the utmost accuracy, these scholarships are not administered by Cambridge Judge Business School, so you must contact the organisations directly for more detailed information:
