Through The Cambridge Trust, the university offers undergraduate/graduate scholarships for different academic programs. It is relevant to mention that most of them are partial scholarships that do not seek to cover the total costs of studying at Cambridge.

Additionally, the scholarships are organized in a search engine that allows filtering by nationality.

Eligibility Criteria for Undergraduate / Bachelor’s Scholarships

It is important to mention that these scholarships are highly competitive, and their eligibility criteria are based on:

  • Achievements and academic potential
  • Applicant’s financial need

However, each scholarship varies its eligibility criteria, therefore it is recommended to carefully review the description of each one.

Application Process for Undergraduate / Undergraduate Scholarships

Usually, those interested in this scholarship must complete their application to the academic program in the month of October.

The application process varies depending on each scholarship. In some cases, they do not have an additional application and are automatically offered by the university.

Those interested in postgraduate scholarships must complete the requirements at the time of application in their academic program. In other words, they should not apply directly to scholarships.
