In establishing the Gates Cambridge Scholarship program, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation hopes to create a network of future leaders from around the world who will bring new vision and commitment to improving the life circumstances of citizens in their respective countries. Over time, it is anticipated that Gates Cambridge Scholars will become leaders in helping to address global problems related to health, equity, technology, and learning – all areas in which the Foundation is deeply engaged.

The program will offer a substantial number of scholarships for study as an affiliated student or to pursue postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge.

Students must first be admitted to Cambridge, and at that time, if the deadline has not passed, their name will be submitted for a Gates scholarship.
