International Full Scholarships from University of Cambridge,UK

Overview:
The Gates Cambridge Scholarship program was established in October 2000 by a donation of US$210m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the University of Cambridge; this is the largest ever single donation to a UK university.

Each year, Gates Cambridge will offer 80 fully funded scholarships to outstanding applicants from countries outside the UK to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge.

Approximately two-thirds of these awards will be offered to PhD students, with approximately 25 awards available in the US round and 55 available in the International round.

The selection criteria are:
> outstanding intellectual ability
> reasons for choice of course
> a commitment to improving the lives of others
> leadership potential
Benefits
The Gates Cambridge Scholarship is one of the most generous international scholarships available. It covers the following costs:
> the University Composition Fee at the appropriate rate*
> a maintenance allowance for a single student (£17,848 for 12 months at the 2021-22 rate; pro rata for courses shorter than 12 months) – for PhD scholars the award is for up to 4 years
> one economy single airfare at both the beginning and end of the course
> inbound visa costs & the cost of the Immigration Health Surcharge

*The University Composition Fee varies for different types of students; applicants should see the Graduate Studies prospectus for full details about precise amounts. Where a student from the European Union has been successful in gaining a fees award from public authorities they must accept this and the Trust will not pay these fees.
