Gates Cambridge Trust 10th Anniversary

  • April 17, 2009

The year 2010 is the tenth anniversary of the Gates Cambridge Trust.  An important milestone, to be marked by a weekend of celebration in Cambridge for Gates scholars and alumni, from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 July.

Since the first cohort of Gates Scholars arrived in Cambridge in October 2001, the Gates community both within Cambridge and around the world has developed into a lively, engaged body of people that fulfil the programme’s aims of intellectual enquiry and social responsibility.

To reflect the interests and talents of Gates scholars and alumni, the celebration weekend will include panel discussions on environment, public/private sectors, leadership and the future of the Gates programme, as well as a wide variety of social events.
