The Trust is delighted to welcome the 2009 entry of Gates Cambridge Scholars!
The 88 new scholars come from 33 different countries and most have just started their course at Cambridge.
But before the academic year kicked off, the new scholars attended the Gates Scholars’ orientation programme in Ambleside – a picturesque spot in the UK’s Lake District. Orientation for new scholars is organised by the Gates Scholars’ Council and is the first part of a welcome programme. At Ambleside the new scholars got to meet each other and a number of current Gates Scholars to forge bonds before they begin their academic work in Cambridge.
