The Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme was established in October 2000 to provide full-cost scholarships to outstanding applicants from countries outside the UK, to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge. For 2020 entry, 80 such scholarships will be offered, approximately two-thirds of which will be offered to PhD students, with approximately 25 awards available in the US round and 55 available in the International round.
There are about 225 Scholars from around 50 countries studying in Cambridge at any one time, who pursue the full range of subjects available at the University and are spread across its departments and Colleges.
The aim of the Gates Cambridge programme is to build a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.
