University of Cambridge scholarships

The University of Cambridge offers a range of scholarships each year, and most of these can be viewed via the University's funding search tool.

All scholarships are awarded before the start of the academic year. There are no funds that can be awarded after the academic year has started, and you should not make financial plans assuming that you will receive funds after you have started the programme. 

Please note that the deadline for applying for Cambridge funding is early in the admissions cycle and it is therefore essential that you apply to the Master of Accounting early if you wish to be considered for these scholarships.


There are a small number of needs-based bursaries (fee reductions) available. Awards are between £2,000 and £5,000 and you are strongly advised to secure other sources of funding for the programme.

Requests for bursary assistance, outlining the reason, will be treated in confidence and should be made at the same time as an application is submitted. Please email your request to Bursary requests will not be considered until an application has been submitted and awards will be made two weeks after the end of each admissions round.

I am incredibly honoured and grateful to have been awarded the first Emily Booth Scholarship for Female Leadership in Business. It is the unfortunate reality that women today still face many challenges in the world of business. I am hoping that the skills and knowledge I gain through the Master of Accounting programme will help me to contribute more powerfully to removing these barriers and empower the next generation.
