Cambridge Trust Scholarships Undergraduate and Postgraduate Scholarships are for study at Cambridge University. As the Trust receives a large number of applications, your patience while waiting for a decision will be appreciated. The Trust’s award period runs from March to the end of July and is an ongoing process during that period.
Most scholarships are awarded in March, but some of them are partner-funded and may take longer to process.
Additionally, you may be able to promote reserve candidates if offers are rejected.
As long as you have applied before the funding deadline and have a conditional offer of admission to your course, you will be considered for any award for which you are eligible.
Please note that due to the number of applications the Trust receives, it is not possible to notify applicants who have not been selected.
Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible.
Please use the Scholarship Search to find a list of scholarships for which you may be eligible.

We recommend that you check the list very regularly.
