Trinity College offers a range of competitive graduate funds (often referred to as studentships or bursaries) to students wishing to study at the University of Cambridge. The Trinity Bursaries for Students from Africa are intended for students from any African country who wish to take a taught post-graduate course at the University of Cambridge, leading to the MASt, the MPhil or the LLM degree. The Bursaries are awarded for up to one year and are not renewable. Up to two Bursaries may be awarded. Bursars who wish to stay on to do research for the PhD degree may compete, towards the end of their year, for a Trinity Internal Graduate Studentship.
