Cambridge Trust Achievements
The Cambridge Trust: The Stories & The Community
To celebrate 10 years since the merger of the Cambridge Overseas and Cambridge Commonwealth Trusts and over forty years of supporting students, we’ve produced a short film that showcases the vital work of the Cambridge Trust.
Watch the film below:
During its forty-year history of offering scholarships at the University of Cambridge, the Trust has helped more than 22,000 students who would not be able to take up their places without financial support.
Today, the Trust works with the University, Colleges of Cambridge, and many international and UK-based partners in order to provide the widest possible access to the University of Cambridge to outstanding students from all parts of the world, irrespective of their social and economic background.
Collaborating with a diverse mix of partners enables the Trust to support students from many countries around the world and help many more students than if it funded the scholarships on its own. The Trust is grateful to its partners in the UK, internationally and across Collegiate Cambridge for their continued commitment to supporting students at the University.
The student support offered by the Trust and its partners recognises and rewards excellence, and provides the necessary financial assistance required by those who are disadvantaged.
600+new awards offered every year
The Cambridge Trust awards around 600 Cambridge scholarships annually. Awards are offered to selected students at PhD, Masters and undergraduate level, in all subjects and at all 31 Colleges of the University of Cambridge.
