The Gates Cambridge Scholarship covers the full cost of attending the University of Cambridge in order to earn an advanced degree or a second bachelors degree.  The Trustees are required to award scholarships on the basis of a person’s intellectual ability, leadership capacity and desire to use their knowledge to contribute to society throughout the world by providing service to their communities and applying their talents and knowledge to improve the lives of others.  Citizens of any country outside the United Kingdom are eligible to apply, and students may apply to study any subject available at the University of Cambridge.
