The financial support available for international undergraduates is limited but at Cambridge this includes Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust awards; College awards; and country-specific scholarships. Few full undergraduate scholarships are available – most support is a partial contribution and is means-tested. Please pay particular attention to the application requirements and deadlines.

Cambridge Trust

The Cambridge Trust offers awards (mostly part-cost) to overseas students, including affiliated students, who have been accepted for admission by a Cambridge College.

You cannot apply for funding through the Trust until you've been offered a place at one of the Colleges. At this point, the College will send you full details of the Trust awards and an application form. All awards are means-tested. To browse available awards by country, see the Trust website.

College awards

Some Colleges offer partial financial support for overseas students. Further information can be obtained from College admissions offices.

International Disabled Students' Fund

The International Disabled Students' Fund (IDS Fund) is administered by the Disability Resource Centre. Eligible offer holders and students of the University who are classified as an international student for fees purposes are able to apply to the Fund for support in meeting the costs of academic-related disability support. See the Disability Resource Centre website for details.

Prince Philip Scholarship for applicants from Hong Kong

If you're a permanent resident of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region applying for a first degree at Cambridge, you're eligible to apply. The Scholarship offers cash awards and means-tested support for tuition fees and maintenance (living costs).

To apply for the Prince Philip Scholarship, you need to send your application at the same time as you submit your application to Cambridge. For further information about the Scholarships and how to apply, see the Prince Philip Scholarship website.
