2014 Cambridge International Scholarship for Overseas Students

Deadline: December 3, 2013

Applications are open for the Cambridge International Scholarships Scheme (CISS). Overseas Students who wish to embark on a research course in the next academical year are invited to apply. The University of Cambridge through the Cambridge Trusts, will offer approximately 80 Cambridge International Scholarships. The awards will be made on a competitive basis to those applicants considered by their departments to be the most outstanding.

Each award will cover the full cost of fees and maintenance for the duration of the course. The award has a maximum duration of three years and is available to all students who will be registered for a three year research programme, leading to the PhD (including CPGS), that starts in the next academical year.


To be eligible to receive a Cambridge International Scholarship students must:

  • be liable to pay the Overseas University Composition Fee (i.e. be assessed as ‘Overseas’ for Fee Status purposes).
  • be engaged in a three year research programme leading to the PhD (i.e. will be registered as PhD, “Probationary PhD” or “CPGS”) starting in the next academical year.
  • be engaged in full-time study.
  • have a high upper-second-class undergraduate honours degree from a UK Higher Education Institution, or an equivalent from an Overseas Institution.

Please note: all students applying for a course of one year duration or less (including LLM, MSt, MBA, MED, Part III Mathematics, MPhil) in the next academical year are not eligible for a CISS award in the next academical year.
