The Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme was established in October 2000 by a donation of $210 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to the University of Cambridge; this is the largest-ever single donation to a UK university.
Each year, Gates Cambridge offers 80 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. Approximately two-thirds of these awards will be offered to Ph.D. students.
The application deadline is determined by the course you are applying for and is set by the central Graduate Admissions Office. You can find which deadline applies to you by checking the “Funding Deadlines” tab in the course’s description in the course directory. Please also note that if a course deadline is earlier than the relevant funding deadline, you must apply by the earlier course deadline.
