Want to be a Gates Cambridge Scholar?

University of Cambridge and Gates Cambridge Scholarship applications open on 1 September.   

Applications for the University of Cambridge and Gates Cambridge Scholarships open on 1 September.   

To apply for a Gates Cambridge Scholarship, you must apply for both a Gates Cambridge Scholarship and admission to your chosen postgraduate course at the University of Cambridge through the Graduate Admissions Office. It is not possible to apply for a Gates Cambridge Scholarship without applying to the University of Cambridge in the first instance. If you are applying for an MBA or Master of Finance, all applications must be made directly to the Judge Business School.

Applications from US citizens who are normally resident in the US must be submitted by 16 October. The deadline for applicants from all countries other than the USA (except the United Kingdom) and US citizens normally resident outside the USA is 4 December.

From the date of submission, applicants will have 14 days to submit additional documents, such as references and transcripts.  It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all necessary documents are uploaded within this time period.

The applicant will receive login details 24 – 30 hours after the submission of their application and will then be able to upload additional documents.Referees will be emailed a link to upload references within 24 – 30 hours after submission.

If an applicant does not work on their application for two weeks, they will receive an email warning that they have seven days in which to submit the application before it is automatically deleted. If they do not submit within the seven days, there is no way to prevent the application from being deleted. 

Gates Cambridge will be hosting a webinar about the Scholarship and the University of Cambridge application process on 6th September.  It will begin at 16.00 BST (GMT +1 due to daylight savings in the UK).
