For: Seniors and recent graduates
In establishing the Gates Cambridge Scholars program, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation hopes to create a network of future leaders from around the world who will bring new vision and commitment to improving the life circumstances of citizens in their respective countries. Over time, it is anticipated that Gates Cambridge Scholars will become leaders in helping to address global problems related to health, equity, technology and learning—all areas that the Foundation is deeply engaged in.
The program will offer a substantial number of scholarships that support one to four years of graduate study at the University of Cambridge.
To apply to this scholarship, students must apply for admittance to the University of Cambridge. This is an involved process so students should start early on their applications. Students do not need to be nominated by UAA, but students should plan to complete their applications early so they can be mailed to the UK before the deadline.
