The webinar will be hosted by the Gates Cambridge Trust and current Gates Cambridge Scholars and will cover details on both applying for a Gates Cambridge Scholarship, and information on the University of Cambridge and life as a Gates Scholar.

It will also include real life experiences from a panel of Gates Scholars who have applied for this scholarship from different countries and backgrounds. The panellists include:

After the presentation, there will be a chance to ask the panel questions. The webinar will be recorded and will be posted on the site for those who cannot join on 6th September. It will begin at 16.00 BST – GMT +1 due to daylight savings in the UK.
