2014 Clutton-Brock Scholarship for Zimbabwean Students to Study in UK

Deadline: December 3, 2013

Students from Zimbabwe are invited to apply for the 2014 Clutton-Brock Scholarship. The objective of this scholarship scheme is to establish – as a permanent memorial to the late Guy Clutton Brock, Hero of Zimbabwe and graduate of Magdalene College – scholarships at postgraduate level in the University of Cambridge for the benefit of students from Zimbabwe.

Subject to the availability of funds, Cambridge aims to have up to two Clutton-Brock Scholars in residence at any one time for:

  • a one-year graduate taught course, leading to a postgraduate qualification (usually the MPhil degree) and
  • a three-year course of research, leading to the PhD degree.


Each category of scholarship provides:

  • the University composition fee (home rate: PhD; overseas rate: MPhil);
  • approved College fees
  • a maintenance allowance for a single student; and
  • a contribution to a return economy airfare.


  • The Scholarships are open to citizens of Zimbabwe, normally under the age of 35 and normally resident in Zimbabwe, who already have, or expect to obtain before 1 October 2014, a first class or high second class degree or its equivalent from a recognised University.
  • Preference will be given to students wishing to study subjects relevant to the development of Zimbabwe.

The scheme is administered on behalf of the University of Cambridge and Magdalene College by the Board of Graduate Studies (for admission to the University) and the Cambridge Trusts (for funding).
