Cambridge-Africa PhD Scholarship Scheme

Cambridge-Africa Scholarships

The University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Trust are generously providing funding to enable 35 (five per year for seven years) outstanding applicants from sub-Saharan African countries to study for PhDs at the University of Cambridge. The PhDs can be in any subject area, but for 2021 the topic must have clear relevance to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Preference will be given to applicants proposing to work on projects that focus on African priorities, and those who have links to African institutions. Applications for scholarships open in September each year, and close according to the Department deadlines (usually either early December or early January).
