Fully Funded International Cambridge Scholarship – Masters/PHD 2022 -2023

Fully Funded  International Cambridge Scholarship – Masters/Ph.D. 2022 – 2023


All scholarships are available only for study at the University of Cambridge and require that you apply to the University via the normal online application form, and by the relevant deadline (please see below for deadlines).


Applicants must be intending to start a course at the level of:

  • Undergraduate (excluding UK applicants)
  • Masters (such as MPhil, MAST, LLM)
  • Research postgraduate (such as Ph.D.)

The Trust does not offer full-cost scholarships for MBA or MFin programs.  The Trust will consider co-funding students on MBA and MFin who are nominated to the Trust by funding partners (who may have their procedures for applying).

Please read the Trust’s web pages on eligibility 

Application Process

There are different procedures for applying for undergraduate study (BA and similar) and postgraduate study (Masters’s, Ph.D., and similar).

You must have applied for admission to the University by the relevant deadline and have a conditional offer of admission to be considered for Cambridge Trust funding. 

If a separate application is required, you must have applied to the University by the relevant deadline and have a conditional offer of admission, in conjunction with submitting the separate application, to be considered.


Undergraduate study

The UCAS application deadline for the 2021 entry is 15 October 2022, 6.00 pm (UK time).  

However, there are some exceptions.  If you are applying for undergraduate study and wish to be interviewed in Malaysia or Singapore, the deadline is 20 September 2022.  To minimize COVID-related risks to applicants, students, and staff, overseas interviews will be conducted remotely.

Postgraduate study

If you are applying for postgraduate study, please check and apply by the funding deadline specific to your course.  You will need to indicate on your application form that you wish to be considered for funding.

There are two general course funding deadlines of 3 December 2022 and 7 January 2023. These deadlines apply to both UK and overseas applicants.

Awards Process 

As the Trust receives an extremely large number of applications, your patience would be appreciated while waiting for a decision.  The Trust’s awards period runs from March to the end of July and is an ongoing process throughout that period. The majority of our full awards are made in March, but some of our partner-funded awards can take longer to process.  In addition, we may be able to promote reserve candidates if and when offers are declined.

As long as you have applied by the funding deadline and have a conditional offer of admission for your course, you will be considered for any awards for which you are eligible.

Please note that due to the number of applications the Trust receives, it is not possible to notify unsuccessful applicants.  Awardees will be notified as soon as possible.
