Scholars' council

The Scholars' Council is integral to the Scholar experience and works to facilitate a strong and inclusive Scholar community.

Overview

The Gates Cambridge Scholars Council supports the aims of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship to create a network of responsible global leaders. Drawing on the experiences and aspirations of the entire Gates community, the Council strives to enrich the academic, social, and professional lives of all scholars. The council does so by organizing the orientation and induction programme for new Scholars, and through various events in Cambridge and further afield. These include a Gala in the fall, academic programming, and social outings across the year.
