Jesus College was founded in 1496, and originally consisted of buildings taken over from the nunnery of St Mary and St Radegund. This set of buildings remains the core of the college to this day, and this accounts for its distinctly peaceful and spacious character, which sets it apart from other Cambridge colleges.
The College offers several scholarships and studentships for postgraduates, and works with the Cambridge Trust to offer the following awards:
- Kenneth Sutherland Memorial Scholarship, for PhD applicants from Canada (not awarded every year)
- Cambridge Schröder Scholarship in German Studies, for PhD applicants of any nationality (in conjunction with the University's Department of German and Dutch) (next available in 2019-20)
Note for students
You are encouraged to use the Trust's scholarships search to find all the awards for which you may be eligible.
