Gates Cambridge Scholarships – International Students 2024-2025

The Gates Cambridge Trust Scholarships are highly sought-after international scholarships that offer outstanding applicants from outside the UK an opportunity to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge. With about 80 scholarships awarded each year, it is one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. The scholarship is open to citizens of any country outside the UK who are interested in pursuing a PhD (full-time or part-time), MLitt (full-time), or a one-year postgraduate course (full-time) in any subject. However, certain courses are not eligible, such as undergraduate degrees, business doctorate (BusD), Master of Business (MBA), Master of Finance (MFin), and other non-degree courses.


The Gates Cambridge Scholarship covers the full cost of studying at Cambridge, including tuition fees, maintenance allowance (£20,000 for 12 months at the 2023-24 rate; pro rata for courses shorter than 12 months), one economy single airfare at both the beginning and end of the course, and inbound visa costs and the cost of the Immigration Health Surcharge. In addition, scholars may receive discretionary funding for academic development, family allowance, fieldwork, and other expenses.

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must apply for admission and funding via the University’s Graduate Application Portal. There are two Gates Cambridge application deadlines: 11 October 2023 (for US citizens resident in the USA) and either 5 December 2023 or 4 January 2024, depending on the course, for all other eligible applicants. International students who are interested in applying for the Gates Cambridge Trust Scholarships should visit the official website for more information on the scholarship and the application process.
