The Gates Cambridge scholarships
What’s it about? To pursue postgraduate or research studies in Cambridge University, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation offers scholarships every year. Each year, the foundation screens 7000 applications for 55 places. All applicants are first evaluated by the academic department in Cambridge to which they are applying. Of these, the department then recommends the very best applicants to the trust. So, you must apply to both – for admission to the course and also for your consideration for the scholarship at the same time.
Eligibility: Candidates must have a first class or high second class honours degree, or its equivalent, from a recognised university and must secure admission in the Cambridge University on their own. You may apply to study any subject available at the University of Cambridge in any full-time residential courses of study of research leading to the PhD degree, one-year post-graduate courses, two year MSc degree, second Bachelor degree as an affiliated student or MBBChir Clinical Studies
