National Scholarships and Fellowships

  • The Gates Cambridge Trust enables outstanding students to study at the University of Cambridge. Annually, 40 U.S. students are awarded the scholarships, which fully fund the proposed program of graduate study (usually 1-4 years). To be competitive for this award you must have high GPA and GRE scores, demonstrated intellectual ability, leadership capacity, and the desire to use knowledge to contribute to society. Students must apply to and be accepted by Cambridge. The Gates Cambridge scholarship application is a supplement within the actual admissions application.

  • Application Deadline: October 11, 2017. If a course (academic department) deadline is earlier than the relevant funding deadline of October 11, 2017, you must apply by the earlier course deadline.
