Undergraduate Study


The University and Colleges are committed to the principle that no suitably qualified Home fee status student should be deterred from applying to Cambridge by their financial circumstances. Therefore, an extensive programme of financial support - including non-repayable Cambridge Bursaries - is offered to help our students meet the cost of their Cambridge education, regardless of background.

Cambridge Bursary Scheme

The Cambridge Bursary Scheme is a long running initiative, which gives non-repayable bursaries for living costs to eligible students. Elements of the scheme (such as eligibility criteria and bursary value) are currently being reviewed. Please see the Cambridge Bursary Scheme website for more information and to check for updates.

Stormzy Scholarship for Black UK Students

Two scholarships were awarded to students commencing study at Cambridge in autumn 2018, made possible by the generous support of Stormzy. The awards will cover tuition fees and a significant contribution towards living costs for up to four years of an undergraduate degree course. For more information, see the Stormzy Scholarship webpage.

Faculty awards and grants

Some faculties and departments may offer funds, grants and/or prizes for students to in recognition of academic achievement. Where available, details of such awards can be found on the relevant faculty/department website.
