Scholarships

The Emily Booth Scholarship for Female Leadership in Business

This scholarship is open to all female applicants to the Master of Accounting, but only candidates who are invited to interview are eligible to apply. The value of the award is £10,000 and the deadline for applications is 3 June 2019. The recipient will be chosen by the scholarship committee, and the successful candidate will be informed by 17 June 2019.

In order to apply, please submit 500 words in answer to the following questions:

  • What are the most important issues facing women in accounting today? 
  • How do you plan to overcome those barriers and create opportunities for others?

Completed applications should be emailed to macc@jbs.cam.ac.uk.

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 Cambridge Master of Accounting early if you wish to be considered for these scholarships.

Bursaries

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 macc@jbs.cam.ac.uk. 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.
