Information for undergraduate applicants

The Cambridge Trust offers scholarships for undergraduate students who pay the University composition fee at the Overseas rate.  UK and EU undergraduate students should apply to the Cambridge Bursary Scheme.

Full information about undergraduate study in Cambridge can be found on the University website.

Most of the Trust's scholarships are part-cost awards which will pay only part of the cost of studying in Cambridge.  Use the scholarship search to find the awards for which you may be eligible.

The eligibility requirements for part-cost scholarships are:

  • significant academic achievement and potential
  • financial need

You do not need to apply to the Trust for funding, as the Trust will only consider applicants who are put forward by their Colleges.   If you are offered admission, your College may invite you to apply for financial support from the Trust.

Funding for international students with financial need is highly competitive.  If you do not require financial support in order to study at Cambridge, please do not apply for a scholarship.  You will only be eligible for a scholarship if we are satisfied that you have financial need.

You will be informed in April if you have been successful in gaining a scholarship.
