Call for applications for the Gates Cambridge Scholarship 2020 in the UK. The Gates Cambridge Scholarship in the UK is one of the most generous international scholarships available. The Cambridge University Scholarship is available for international students to study masters or Ph.D. in the Uk. The aim of the Gates Scholarship Program is to build a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.
The Gates Cambridge Scholarship program 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.
For 2020 entry, Gates Cambridge will offer 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 Ph.D. students, with approximately 25 awards available in the US round and 55 available in the International round.
