St Catharine’s College Benavitch Scholarship

Thanks to a generous bequest from the late Maurice and Natalie Benavitch, St Catharine’s offers up to five scholarships. Each worth £10,000, they are awarded to outstanding MFin and MBA candidates at Cambridge Judge Business School.

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit. They are intended for candidates who will become leaders in the practice or study of management, business or finance.

Recipients of the Benavitch Scholarships will become members of St Catharine’s College, around five minutes’ walk from Cambridge Judge Business School. They will become members of the College’s Middle Combination Room, the society for graduate students of the College.
