Funding Opportunities

There are many different sources of funding available to support UK and international students in Biological Anthropology, but full scholarships for MPhil students are highly competitive. Exceptionally strong candidates for the MPhil programmes in Biological Anthropology are entered for scholarship schemes according to eligibility: eg Gates US, Gates International, and scholarship schemes administered by the Cambridge Trust, among others. Staff will also endeavour to support students in obtaining funding from University, College and external sources. For further information about funding opportunities, visit the Funding for Postgraduate Students page on the Department website.
