Scholarships

The University operates a Graduate Funding Competition which co-ordinates funding from a wide variety of sources including the Cambridge Trust, Gates Cambridge, ESRC Research Council, and some funding from colleges and other University funds. There are also additional funding competitions outside of the Graduate Funding Competition for which additional applications may be required. Use the Funding Search to find more information on University funding opportunities.

Please check the funding bodies' deadlines if you intend to apply for funding, as you may have to apply earlier than if you were funding your study yourself.

Please see the Graduate Admissions' Funding webpages for more information on funding deadlines and how to apply.
