Gates Cambridge

The Gates Cambridge Scholarship supports one to three years of post-baccalaureate study in any field at the University of Cambridge.  Students must apply for admission as a postgraduate student to the University of Cambridge and a Gates Cambridge Scholarship at the same time, with one application form, via the Graduate Admissions Office. Applicants must demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, potential for scholarly development, and a commitment to use the benefits of their education for the common good. Citizens from any country other than the UK are eligible.

*Application Deadline for U.S. Citizens: October 9, 2019
*Application Deadline for non-U.S. Citizens: Either December 3, 2019, or January 7, 2020, dependent on course selection; see website for further instructions.

*Non-U.S. citizens should check the 2020-21 Graduate Studies Prospectus to see if the course to which they are applying has a deadline before the December deadline. In such cases applicants will need to apply by the earlier course deadline.
