Cambridge University in the UK is inviting prospective graduate students to apply for the fully-funded Cambridge International Scholarship for international students undertaking PhD studies. This scholarship is geared towards giving intelligent people the opportunity to further their studies in one of the best Universities in the United Kingdom, and in the world.
The aim of the Cambridge International Scholarships is to ensure that the 250 highest ranked students, irrespective of nationality, receive full financial support to undertake research leading to a PhD. The Scholarships pay the University Composition Fee and a maintenance allowance sufficient for a single person.
These prestigious scholarships are offered to candidates in any subject who are highly ranked by their prospective Departments within the University and are awarded on the basis of academic ability and research potential, examination results, and references. The financial situation of candidates does not affect selection.

How to Apply

The only factors taken into consideration in agreeing on this list are academic qualifications, references and research potential. The financial situation of applicants does not affect the selection of scholarship winners.
- Successful applicants are informed at the earliest opportunity and the Trust will announce the winners of the Cambridge International Scholarships for 2018-19 in early March 2018.
- In order to maximise the number of Scholarships awarded, the Trust will, when appropriate, promote winners of Vice-Chancellor’s Awards and Cambridge International Scholarships to other full-cost awards with UK Research Councils, or partner organisations, or Departments or Colleges, who are willing to provide either the full amount or part of the cost of the scholarship. Where part of the cost of a scholarship is offered, the Trust will meet the balance.
- In the case of students securing other full-cost scholarships, the Trust will be pleased to offer ‘honorary’ status which entitles them to become a Trust scholar without remuneration.
- The application is done by applying for graduate admission
