Award: All tuition and fees and a yearly stipend of approximately £12,250 per year (renewable), plus transportation costs to and from the United Kingdom at the start and conclusion of the program. In addition, recipients with dependants may apply for further support.

Eligibility: Applicants must be citizens of a country other than the United Kingdom, have an excellent academic transcript and a record of sustained distinguished intellectual and extra-curricular activity, and be newly admitted to a full-time residential post-graduate degree program (or secondary Bachelor's) at Cambridge University.

When to Apply:  Applications are usually due in mid October.

Endowed in 2000 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Gates Cambridge Fellowships are quite similar to Oxford University's Rhodes Fellowships. Each year, approximately 100 new scholarships (of which roughly 40 are designated for American scholars) are granted to recipients who evidence excellent intellectual ability, a capacity for leadership, and a desire to applying their talents and knowledge to contributing to the betterment of society at large and the lives of others. During their time at Cambridge University, recipients are expected to complete a graduate degree (such as a PhD, MPhil, LLM, MBA, MSc, or MBBChir) or, under certain circumstances, a second Bachelors degree as an Affiliated Student. 

Please note: The Gates Cambridge Fellowship is meant to provide support for qualified students to study at Cambridge University, but the Fellowship Trust is not involved in the University's admittance process. Thus, it is very important for applicants to apply for admission to Cambridge through the University's normal channels.
