Smuts Memorial Fund


The Smuts Fund and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust annually fund up to two international students on PhD courses. This scholarship is available to PhD applicants whose research relates to a Commonwealth country or countries (excluding the UK), normally in the fields of Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences.  

Each scholarship will be awarded for three years, and will pay the University Tuition Fee and an annual stipend sufficient for a single person. The scholarships are tenable at any College within the University of Cambridge.

No separate application is required for this scholarship, only the application for admission to the University of Cambridge, which must be submitted by the funding deadline specific to your course (please refer to the Postgraduate Course Directory)
