The Cambridge international scholarship is offered to graduate students to pursue PhD degrees at the University of Cambridge UK. The University of Cambridge will offer, via the Cambridge Trusts, approximately 250 Cambridge International Scholarships to Overseas Students who embark on a research course in the next academic year. The awards will be made on a competitive basis to those applicants considered by their departments to be the most outstanding.
