Scholars' council

The Gates Cambridge Scholars Council supports the aims of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship to create a network of responsible global leaders. Drawing on the experiences and aspirations of the entire Gates community, the Council strives to enrich the academic, social, and professional lives of all scholars.

These include a Gala in the fall, academic programming, and social outings across the year.
