Peterhouse Graduate Studentships Competition at University of Cambridge UK 2021

The Governing Body of Peterhouse, University of Cambridge UK invites applications from international students for the Peterhouse Graduate Studentships Competition for the 2021/22 academic year.

Each year Peterhouse awards several Postgraduate Studentships, both as matched funding with other awarding bodies and as studentships fully funded by the College. Applicants should note that the awards are highly competitive, with fifty or more applications for each studentship from applicants of high academic calibre.

Worth of Award

  • In the 2022-2023 competition, studentships will be offered only for PhD study, covering both fees and maintenance for up to a maximum of three years.
  • These will be “top-up” awards, so if a candidate has partial funding from elsewhere, Peterhouse will make this up to a full award.
  • If a successful applicant has no funding from other sources, then their studentship will cover University and College fees plus maintenance at the same level as Arts and Humanities Research Council awards.
