About Scholarship: The University of Cambridge will offer, via the Cambridge Trusts, approximately 250 Cambridge International Scholarships to Overseas Students who embark on a research course in the next academic year. The awards will be made on a competitive basis to those applicants considered by their departments to be the most outstanding.

Eligibility: To be eligible to receive a Cambridge International Scholarship, students must:
- be liable to pay the Overseas University Composition Fee (i.e. be assessed as ‘Overseas’ for Fee Status purposes).

- be engaged in full-time study.
- have a high upper-second-class undergraduate honours degree from a UK Higher Education Institution, or an equivalent from an Overseas Institution.
Please note: all students applying for a course of one year duration or less (including LLM, MSt, MBA, MED, Part III Mathematics, MPhil) in the next academic year are not eligible for a CISS award in the next academic year.
Selection Criteria: A University Committee draws up one ranked list of all PhD candidates across all disciplines. The only factors taken into consideration in agreeing this list are academic qualifications, references and research potential. The financial situation of applicants does not affect the selection of scholarship winners.
Number of Scholarships: A total of 250 scholarships will be awarded.
Value of Scholarship: Each scholarship award will take care of the full cost of fees and maintenance for the duration of the course for every accepted student.
