Cambridge European Trust


The Cambridge European Trust offers scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students of the University (including those currently in their final year of study) tenable in the Christmas, Easter and Long Vacations, towards the cost of academically valuable activities undertaken by Cambridge students in European countries, widely defined (and not limited to the EU or Western Europe).

Purposes such as attendance at intensive short courses offered by European universities, intensive courses in languages for non-linguists, and scientific work in European laboratories could be supported. Vacation courses and fieldtrips organised by Cambridge Faculties and Departments, and work which forms a compulsory part of a Cambridge Course are not normally included.

The value of awards will be determined according to the cost of the activity and the other resources available to the student, but most awards are expected to be of £250. Those offered awards are expected to submit a short written report on their return.

Further details and application forms are available from the Trust's website at: or from the Secretary, Cambridge European Trust, 32 Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1QY. They should be returned by 17 November 2006 for Christmas Vacation Scholarships, 16 February 2007 for Easter Vacation Scholarships and 18 May 2007 for Long Vacation Scholarships. Decisions will be made as soon as possible after the closing dates.
