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 2020-21 must apply by either the 5 December 2019 or 3 January 2020, 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 2020-21, and the winners of the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for that year, in early March 2020.

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 2020 if you are have been successful in gaining a scholarship, following meetings of the Selection Committee.

Eligibility

These are guidelines on eligibility for scholarships that are available from the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust:

Nationality

All students, irrespective of nationality, are eligible to be considered for funding by the Trust.

Status

The Trust does not accept applications from students who are part-way through a course at Cambridge, unless they are applying for funding towards a higher degree course following graduation.

To find out more about your fee status, see information on the University’s web pages for undergraduates and for postgraduates.

Degree level

Applicants must be intending to start a course at the level of undergraduate (excluding UK/EU applicants), Masters (such as MPhil, MASt, LLM), or research postgraduate (such as PhD).

Please note that the Trust does not offer many scholarships to students on undergraduate courses, and has many more scholarship programmes available to postgraduate students.  Approximately 85% of the scholarships awarded each year are to students taking Masters or PhD degrees.

The Trust will not normally support students at a degree level that is the same as, or lower than, a degree they already hold, with two exceptions – we will consider an application from a student who is required to take a second Masters degree at Cambridge in order to gain admission to the PhD here, or from an international (non-EU) student who is proposing to study as an affiliated student at Cambridge for a second BA degree.

The Trust does not have scholarships available for post-doctoral positions, or for visiting or exchange students.

The Trust does not have scholarships available for part-time postgraduate degrees, and part-time undergraduate study is not available at the University of Cambridge.

Subject

Applicants may study any subject currently available at the University.

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.
