International Full Scholarships from University of Cambridge,UK

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.

Level of study

The selection criteria are:
> outstanding intellectual ability
> reasons for choice of course
> a commitment to improving the lives of others
> leadership potential

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 (£18,744 for 12 months at the 2022-23 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.
