Be an Ambassador

Give a presentation or informal talk to potential applicants.

The Ambassador Programme is a Scholar and Alumni-led and Trust-supported project to increase awareness about the Gates Cambridge Scholarships across the world.

Scholars and Alumni arrange formal presentations or informal conversations at their local universities or other institutions - e.g. as part of a trip for a conference, fieldwork or holiday - or when they return home after their scholarship. There is no application process, but the Trust has created the resources on this page to support Scholars and Alumni with this outreach work.  

We encourage all Scholars from all parts of the world to engage with the Ambassador programme and are particularly keen to engage scholars and alumni who are able to help us attract even more outstanding candidates from Africa and Latin America.

You will find full details about the programme and resources in the box on this page. You can also use our YouTube channel (where we have an overview film and many other films), news page and our website search and scholar search (if you want to showcase scholars from a certain country).

Feedback: If you are able to present/have presented to potential applicants we would grateful if you could a short form with the details for our reporting purposes. 

Any questions please email scholar.support@gatescambridge.org or call 01223 338467.
