Williams Papworth Studentship

The Williams Papworth Studentship was founded by Bill and Hilary Papworth and since 2014-15 has been administered by Cambridge Trust.

The principal aim is to provide full or partial support for students from the Tibetan Plateau or surrounding regions or countries.  Preference may be given to applicants who are ethnically or culturally connected with Tibet or the Himalayan region.  The Studentship is available for postgraduate study in any academic discipline, and preference will normally be given for one year postgraduate courses.  Consideration will be given only in exceptional circumstances to those who seek funding for PhDs or who have previously attended a university in the UK or the USA.  Preference will not normally be given to those wishing to study Social Anthropology.  The potential of the applicant to make a significant, positive and forward-looking contribution to his/her own community and the wider world is overall more important than subject of study, ethnicity or religious affiliation.
