Help with your postgraduate study....
The Alexander Crummell Scholarships

at Queens' College, Cambridge

We have 13 new postgraduate scholarships (full cost) in science-based subjects for UK-domiciled candidates from "access" backgrounds.
There are seven Master's scholarships and six PhD scholarships, for October 2021, 2022 & 2023 entry

The Alexander Crummell Master's & PhD Scholarships are exciting new opportunities for UK-based students who would not otherwise have the means to consider continuing on to postgraduate level study. They are "full ride" scholarships i.e. fees and maintenance costs.

Anyone can apply if they fulfil the criteria. Candidates must join Queens' College for their postgraduate courses in order to benefit from these scholarships.

Scholars will receive:

- Full funding, covering fees and living expenses;

- Mentoring during their time here from our Fellows; and

- Support as they apply for further academic courses or for post-university employment.

These Scholarships are particularly intended for candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds or those currently under-represented at the University. These candidates will be identified using established criteria, including those currently used for undergraduate admissions.

The Scholarships are open to all students intending to commence a Master's or PhD in a science-based subject.

Scholars must become members of the College and applicants should normally put Queens' as their first preference in their original application to the Board of Graduate Studies.

The award of a Scholarship is conditional upon being accepted by the relevant University Department (via the Board of Graduate Studies).

For further details, please contact The Admissions Tutor, Dr Jane Garrison, on jrg60@cam.ac.uk and look at this link for particulars

The other two trustees of the Scholarships are also Queens' Fellows:

Dr Edwige Moyroud (Niccoli Fellow in Natural Sciences) and Dr Andy Rice (Hassabis Fellow in Computer Science)
