APPLY – Cambridge Trust Scholarships 2023
Applications are open for students to apply for Cambridge Master’s, Opportunities, as well as Studentships. Kindly read through to submit your application:
1 . Studentships for Masters at Cambridge
The top applicants for one-year postgraduate study receive part-cost awards of a variable sum, usually £12,000 apiece, from the Cambridge Trust each year. These awards are known as Cambridge Masters Studentships.
No of how they are already paying their tuition, applicants for master’s degree programs are eligible for the studentships as long as they:
- They submit their application by the Postgraduate Funding deadline for the program they want to enroll in, and the university offers them conditional admission;
- As part of their admissions application through the University’s Applicant Portal, candidates must check the option to apply for financing and complete the online form’s Cambridge Trust component.
Candidates who have already earned a Master’s or Ph.D. degree or who will soon receive one are ineligible.
The Trust is unable to provide financial aid for part-time MSt programs at any University Department. Please be aware that MASt courses and MSt courses are not the same (MASt courses are eligible).
Between March and late July, those who are selected will receive an email.
2 . Get Into Cambridge Studentships and Cambridge Opportunity Studentships
Masters students from low-income households who have experienced educational disadvantage are eligible for Cambridge Opportunity Studentships, which are set at the Home rate for fees.
The Get In Cambridge Studentships is intended to redress the underrepresentation of students from Black, British Bangladeshi, or British Pakistani backgrounds and adhere to the same requirements.
Both studentships are meant to pay for living expenses and tuition when the maximum postgraduate grant or loan is obtained through government student aid. Please visit https://www.postgraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/funding/loans for additional details on postgraduate loans.
A Master’s degree or higher is not required of applicants, nor may they be enrolled in postgraduate studies at the time of application.
Also, you must be able to affirmatively respond “yes” to the following question: “Do I now have the financial resources (in the form of savings, assets, other rewards, or an income independent of hours worked) to fund the proposed course of study?”
One or more of the following should apply to you in addition to the preceding fundamental requirements. If there are any additional difficult life circumstances that you feel should be considered, such as educational disruption from moving schools or illness, working while enrolled in full-time undergraduate study, circumstances that limited your ability to choose a university for undergraduate study, an unusual path to postgraduate study, or anything else, please describe them in the appropriate section on the admissions application questionnaire.
