An information webinar being held in September will give people the inside track on how to apply to be a Gates Cambridge Scholar and what it's like once you are one.

Do you want to apply for a prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship? Then find out all the information you need at a webinar on 6 September.

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:

Annie Robbins (2011), who is doing a PhD in Medical Science.

Luis Perez (2011), who is doing a PhD in Latin American Studies.

Derron Wallace (2010), who is doing a PhD in Education.

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.

After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
