The Cambridge Trust is pleased to offer
- Cambridge International Scholarships – For applicants from countries other than the United Kingdom or Ireland
- vice chancellor’s awards – for UK and Irish citizens who must pay duty at the domestic rate
To applicants who will be undertaking research leading to a PhD at the University of Cambridge in the following academic year.
The purpose of the Cambridge International Scholarships and Vice-Chancellor’s Awards is to ensure that the highest scoring students, regardless of nationality, receive full financial support to study for a PhD. Scholarships cover University Accommodation fees and sufficient maintenance fees for one person.
Applicants who wish to begin PhD studies in the following academic year should apply to both 1 December 2022 or January 5, 2023, whichever deadline is appropriate for your course. Please see the Postgraduate Admissions web page “Application and Funding Deadlines”.
All applicants must complete the funding section of the online application form via the Applicant Portal by ticking the box to indicate they ‘wish to be considered for funding’ and completing the Cambridge Trust section.
The University Committee will compile a score list of all PhD candidates in all disciplines. The only factors considered in agreeing this list are academic qualifications, references and research potential. Applicants’ financial situation does not affect the selection of scholarship winners.
The Trust award period runs from March to the end of July and is an ongoing process throughout. Most of our full awards are given in March. Some of our partner-sponsored rewards may take time, and sometimes when offers are declined, we may offer them elsewhere. You will be notified if you have been successful in winning one of these prizes.
To increase the number of Scholarships awarded, the Trust will, where appropriate, offer winners of Cambridge International Scholarships and Vice-Chancellor’s Awards to partner organisations, UK Research Councils or other full-cost awards with their Departments or Colleges. provide the full amount or part of the value of the scholarship. Where part of the value of the scholarship is offered, the Trust will meet the balance.
If the student receives a full scholarship from any source (excluding Gates Cambridge and Harding), the award offer from the Trust will lapse and you will be offered the status of ‘Honorary Trust Fellow’. This entitles you to participate in Trust events but carries no monetary value. If you have accepted a Gates Cambridge Scholarship or a Harding Distinguished Postgraduate Scholarship, any award offer made by the Trust, including those offered with Honorary status, will cease immediately.
