Funding for UK Students
The University has a number of funding schemes for graduate students from the UK (i.e 'Home' fee status). Similar schemes for EU and Overseas students are run by the Cambridge Trust and Gates Cambridge.
The Vice Chancellor's award scheme offers full funding for up to 100 outstanding applicants for doctoral study. Click here for further information.
The Newton/College Masters scholarship scheme provides up to 50 bursaries for Masters Students. The scheme is generously supported by Colleges and the Isaac Newton Trust. Click here for further information.
UK applicants for will be automatically considered for the Vice Chancellors awards and the Newton/College Masters scheme if they have applied for admission by 9 January 2015. However applicants can indicate their interest to their Department/Faculty by selecting the tick box on the GradSAF Section B.
Applicants are asked to submit their supporting documentation as soon as possible after submitting their application as Departments may not process applications until they are complete.
Faculties and Departments receive applications and score and rank applicants according to specific criteria. Confirmation of the awardees is made by a Committee consisting of academic staff from each of the six Schools. We expect that the majority of successful applicants will receive confirmation of their award during March - April 2015.
