If you have not received an email from the Trust this means that you have not been invited to interview and your application for a Gates Cambridge Scholarship has not been successful. However, your papers will now automatically be passed to the other Trusts in Cambridge and you will be considered for any award for which you are eligible. The other Trusts have a rolling programme of awards, and will make their decisions over the next few months; there is no specific date by which decisions will be made.

For information about awards to students from the EU, see here. For information about the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and Cambridge Overseas Trust see here. Please note that you should email (not telephone) these Trusts if you wish to enquire about your application status.
