The Cambridge Bursary Scheme, run by the University's Student Registry, offers many UK and EU students studying for their first degree financial support in the form of non-repayable bursaries, the value of which is dependent on their household income.

Not only must our undergraduate students commit to tuition fees of £9,000 each year, but the rising cost of living means basic maintenance presents an additional challenge to students from low-income families.

Of the 107 Nobel Prize-winners that Cambridge has produced since 1904, over a third received an undergraduate bursary, scholarship or grant. Today, students face greater financial obstacles than ever to studying at Cambridge and your gift will support the Cambridge Bursary Scheme. The Cambridge Bursary Scheme, run by the University's Student Registry, offers many UK and EU students studying for their first degree financial support in the form of non-repayable bursaries, the value of which is dependent on their household income.

We want to be able to educate those who will benefit and contribute most from studying here by removing any financial or social barriers that currently stand in the way of talented students joining the Cambridge community.
