Gates Cambridge Scholarships are awarded to outstanding applicants from outside the UK to pursue a postgraduate degree in any subject at the University of Cambridge.
Scholarships are awarded based on intellectual ability, leadership capacity, the individual's desire to use their knowledge to contribute to society, and a good fit between the abilities and aspirations of the applicant and what the University of Cambridge can offer in its graduate programs.
There are 90 new scholarships awarded each year, 40 of which are awarded to U.S. citizens. The award itself is for one year of study, but an individual may apply up to four years.
Luther's nomination is required and the deadline for application is typically around October 15. Contact Terry Sparkes, Director of College Honors, if interested.
