University of Cambridge Masters Scholarship is now open for applications from suitably qualified students. It is a fully funded scholarship for all students sponsored by the University of Cambridge.
The University of Cambridge is rich in history–its famous Colleges and University buildings attract visitors from all over the world.
But the University’s museums and collections also hold many treasures which give an exciting insight into some of the scholarly activities, both past and present, of the University’s academics and students.
The Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme was established in October 2000 by a donation of US$210m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the University of Cambridge; this is the largest ever single donation to a UK university.
The first class of scholars came into residence in October 2001.Benefits of University of Cambridge Masters Scholarship

6. Hardship funding–for unforeseen difficulties facing the scholar.
