The University of Cambridge will offer, via the Cambridge Trusts, the Cambridge International Scholarships to highest ranked international students undertaking PhD studies at the University. For UK and EU students, the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards is similarly offered.
Up to 250 scholarships are available.
Note that the scholarship programme targets international students from countries outside the EU (classified as ‘overseas’ for fees purposes).
The scholarships pay the University Composition Fee and a maintenance allowance sufficient for a single person.
A University Committee draws up one ranked list of all PhD candidates across all disciplines. The only factors taken into consideration in agreeing this list are academic qualifications, references and research potential. The financial situation of applicants does not affect the selection of scholarship winners.
All applicants should complete the funding section of the online application form via the Applicant Portal expressing their ‘wish to be considered for funding’. Applicants who wish to start their PhDs in in 2019-20 must apply by either the 5 December 2018 or 3 January 2019 , whichever deadline is appropriate for your course.
