Funding Opportunities

Applicants for the MPhil whose applications indicate that they are seeking funding will automatically be considered for two joint scholarships covering maintenance and fees (set at the UK or 'home' rate). One of these is administered jointly by the English Faculty and Corpus Christ College, the other by the Faculty and Christ's College. The same applicants may also be considered for other Faculty-administered awards that become available from time to time. 

If you wish to be considered for funding administered centrally by the University and its various trust fund managers, and/or by individual Cambridge colleges, please visit the page below to learn about the relevant funding deadlines.
