Scholars' council

The Scholars' Council supports the aims of the Scholarship to create a network of responsible global leaders.

Drawing on the experiences and aspirations of the entire Gates Cambridge community, the Council strives to enrich the academic, social and professional lives of all Scholars. The Council does so by organising 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.
