Wellcome Trust research projects

The Wellcome Trust aims to achieve extraordinary improvements in human and animal health, by supporting the brightest minds in biomedical research and the medical humanities, and is involved with many parts of the University of Cambridge, including several research institutes and projects.

The Cambridge Trust works with the relevant departments within the University (the School of Clinical Medicine and the School of the Biological Sciences) to offer the Wellcome Cambridge Trust Scholarships, for international PhD students whose research programmes are supported by the Wellcome Trust. 

A separate external application is required for this scholarship

In addition to applying for admission to the University of Cambridge by the funding deadline specific to their course, application to certain Wellcome Trust programmes is required to ensure that applicants are considered for the scholarship.
