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.

Bursaries

Only candidates who are invited to interview are eligible to apply for bursaries.
