All scholarships require that you apply to the University of Cambridge via the normal online application form, and most scholarships require that you apply by the relevant deadline.
For courses starting in the academic year 2016-17, undergraduate applicants should apply by 15 October 2015.
International postgraduate applicants should apply by 2 December 2015, and home/EU postgraduate applicants by 6 January 2016.
However, there are some exceptions. If you are applying for undergraduate study and wish to be interviewed in China, Malaysia or Singapore, the deadline is 20 September 2015. If you are applying for postgraduate study, check your specific course deadline as some are earlier than 2 December 2015 - for example, the deadline for applications to the LLM is earlier.
The Cambridge Trust offers scholarships for undergraduate students who pay the University composition fee at the overseas rate. EU undergraduate students should apply to the Newton Trust.
