There are many funding opportunities at Cambridge from a wide variety of sources including the Cambridge Trust, Gates Cambridge, Colleges, Departments, Research Councils and central University funds.
The Graduate Admissions Office publishes information about the University's central funding competitions for Graduate Students , which includes information about eligibility, how to apply and application deadlines.
Students are also advised to do their own research on other funding sources, including the Colleges. Competition for funding is high so we strongly advise that applicants apply for as many funding opportunities as possible, to maximise the chance of success.
Cambridge Funding Search Tool
There are hundreds of awards available for Graduate Students at the University, but it can be difficult to find which ones you are eligible for. To help with this search, the University has developed a Funding Search Tool, a funding search tool which allows you to enter some of your details and pull up a list of funding which might be suitable.
Funding for Social Anthropology Graduate Students
As well as the University’s central funding competitions, there are sources of funding available only for graduate students of the Division of Social Anthropology, most notably the William Wyse Bursary for students undertaking the MPhil or MRes, and the William Wyse Studentship for students undertaking the PhD.
Please see the Postgraduate Funding page for more information about postgraduate funding, and for links to the Wyse funding application website.
