The Cambridge Trust is looking to award a scholarship to academically apt students for the 2018-2019 period and help them pursue PhD studies during the academic year. As a whole, the Cambridge International Scholarships aim to ensure that the 250 highest ranked students are set on a track leading to a PhD research. No restriction applies regarding nationality and international students may apply freely.
Further eligibility criteria rule out applicants who are only part-way through a course at Cambridge unless they are applying for a higher degree course after graduation. All applicants must intend on starting an undergraduate course, obtaining a Master’s degree or research postgraduate degree, PhD for example. However, the Trust mainly focuses on offering scholarships to postgraduate students, with 85% of the scholarships awarded each year to students taking either Master’s or PhD degrees. The application period is opened until 5 December 2017.
