His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales Commonwealth Scholarship

The HRH Prince of Wales Commonwealth Scholarship is a new programme developed in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales with the Cambridge Trust. 

The full-cost awards covering tuition fees and maintenance will support postgraduate applicants from Commonwealth nations to study at the University of Cambridge.

To be eligible, applicants need to:

  • hold a conditional offer of admission to the University of Cambridge;
  • be from one of the fifty three Commonwealth nations;
  • wish to undertake a degree course with a focus on practical themes affecting the future of the Commonwealth including ‘people’ (for example, sustainable communities including culture, economy, history for a sustainable future), ‘planet’ (for example, climate change, oceans, biodiversity) and ‘catalyst’ (for example, sustainable financing, private sector engagement in green and social impact).

Graduate applicants should state that they meet these eligibility criteria on their Graduate Application Form.

A selection panel will assess applications taking regard of the above eligibility criteria.

The Trust will notify successful applicants by the end of April prior to commencement of their course.

Note for students

You are encouraged to use the Trust’s scholarship search to find all the awards for which you be eligible.
