MRes funding


All students who enter the PhD through the MRes receive full funding for their PhD, including their MRes year.

To be considered for admission MRes applicants must apply for any and all funding for which they are eligible. This includes funding from the Cambridge Trust, college funding, Gates Cambridge Scholarships and any external sources of funding. Visit the PhD programme's "Scholarships & bursaries" page to find out more

Please tick all relevant boxes in Section B of the application form and complete personal statements (B1 & B2) for the Cambridge Trusts and Gates. 

Your application form must be submitted by the relevant funding deadline:

  • 12 October 2016 - US citizens currently residing in the USA and applying for Gates funding
  • 7 December 2016 - citizens of countries outside the EU

With all offers, we guarantee that any shortfall in funding from the University or other sources will be covered by a Cambridge Judge Business School scholarship.

In addition to making up the shortfall, the School increases the maintenance stipend for all MRes and PhD students to the level of a research council stipend (for the 2016/17 academic year, this is £14,296 per annum). 

We also award bursaries over and above the value of the maintenance stipend in the form of CJBS Director's Scholarships which are awarded to the best two PhD/MRes applicants. They are worth £1,000 per annum for the MRes year and three years of PhD.

Research grants

Cambridge Judge Business School also has a generous range of grants available to our MRes and PhD students to support their research. All grant applications need to be approved by your supervisor and sometimes by your PhD Pathway Representative. Applications are normally supported if the course or conference is appropriate and you are making good progress towards academic placement.

MRes students who are confirmed to continue with the PhD are eligible to apply for a fieldwork allowance of up to £1,000. Two conference grants of £500 each are also available (by competitive application).
