Statement in relation to the Coronavirus Pandemic
The Gates Cambridge Trust, one of the University of Cambridge's funding bodies which supports international postgraduate students, is doing everything necessary to support its scholars during the current Coronavirus pandemic.
We fully understand the worry and concern that the pandemic has caused for our international scholars resident in Cambridge and away from their families. We are following government advice, working closely with the University of Cambridge and communicating with our scholars to ensure they are provided with appropriate information and guidance, have access to funds they require (including maintenance and travel home, where that is possible) and are fully supported during this challenging time. We are also communicating with candidates about arrangements for selection for entry in October 2020. The Trust remains fully staffed and contactable via email.
We will continue to monitor the evolving situation carefully and will follow government an University advice as it is issued.
