On behalf of the University, the Cambridge Trust is pleased to offer the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards (for UK and EU students) and the Cambridge International Scholarships (for international students) for those undertaking PhD studies.
The aim of the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards and Cambridge International Scholarships is to ensure that the 250 highest ranked students, irrespective of nationality, receive full financial support to undertake research leading to a PhD. The Scholarships pay the University Composition Fee and a maintenance allowance sufficient for a single person.
Applicants who wish to start their PhDs in 2019-20 must apply by either the 5 December 2018 or 3 January 2019, whichever deadline is appropriate for your course. Please see the Graduate Admissions webpage ‘Application & Funding Deadlines’.
All applicants should complete the funding section of the online application form via the Applicant Portal expressing their ‘wish to be considered for funding’.
A University Committee draws up one ranked list of all PhD candidates across all disciplines. The only factors taken into consideration in agreeing with this list are academic qualifications, references and research potential. The financial situation of applicants does not affect the selection of scholarship winners.
Successful applicants are informed at the earliest opportunity and the Trust will announce the winners of the Cambridge International Scholarships for 2019-20, and the winners of the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for that year, in early March 2019.
In order to maximise the number of Scholarships awarded, the Trust will, when appropriate, promote winners of Vice-Chancellor’s Awards and Cambridge International Scholarships to other full-cost awards with UK Research Councils, or partner organisations, or Departments or Colleges, who are willing to provide either the full amount or part of the cost of the scholarship. Where part of the cost of a scholarship is offered, the Trust will meet the balance.
In the case of students securing other full-cost scholarships, the Trust will be pleased to offer ‘honorary’ status which entitles them to become a Trust scholar without remuneration.
The scholarships are awarded early in the academic year. You will be informed in March 2019 if you are have been successful in gaining a scholarship, following meetings of the Selection Committee.
How to Apply
It is easy to apply for funding at Cambridge. Eighty per cent of the funding awarded to applicants last year was from competitions that just require you to complete the funding section of the Graduate Application Form (via the Applicant Portal); you will be able to check using our funding search for options that you aren’t automatically considered for. The most important thing to remember is this: get your applications in early! See below for deadlines.
When will I hear?
Most funding awards are made between the beginning of March and the end of July with the majority of awards being made in March and April. If you haven’t heard by the end of July, you should assume that your application for funding has been unsuccessful.
