Funding Opportunities

The Faculty of Mathematics is excited to announce a substantial new international scholarship scheme for the Master of Advanced Study (MASt) in Mathematics, with up to 30 scholarships available for entry in 2021.

The Faculty is committed to maintaining the global reach of Part III Mathematics. This scheme aims to assist and encourage students from across the world who can benefit from this internationally leading masters programme.

The new scholarships will bridge the gap between the Home and Overseas University fees for the course. For students admitted in 2021, the value will be £11,484. All applicants to the MASt in Mathematics (course codes MASA, MASP, MASS) who require funding and are liable for the Overseas fee will automatically be considered for the scheme.

Part III Mathematics International Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of an assessment of academic potential, as demonstrated by the applicant’s MASt application. The value of the scholarship offered may be adjusted to take into account any other awards held or taken up by a student for the same course.

*A**pplicants wishing to be considered for the Part III Mathematics International Scholarships or for the University of Cambridge Graduate Funding Competition must tick ‘I want to be considered for funding’  and submit their application, including supporting documents and references, by 12:00 pm (noon) UK time on Thursday 7 January 2021.*

Further information is available from our Part III web pages for prospective students and MASt admissions pages.
