Gates Cambridge Scholarships for International Students 2022-23

Dear students,

Greetings from IRC! 

The IBA International Resource Center is pleased to announce the upcoming “Gates Cambridge Scholarships for International Students”.

Each year Gates Cambridge offers 80 full-cost scholarships to outstanding applicants from countries outside the UK to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge. Approximately two-thirds of these awards will be offered to PhD students, with approximately 25 awards available in the US round and 55 available in the international round
