The competition for all Lucy Cavendish studentships, including those individually named below, is closed for 2019 entry.  The deadline was 28 February and our Studentship & Bursary Committee is not able to accept late applications, or applications from non-members.

Lucy Cavendish offers a number of scholarships and bursaries to postgraduate offer-holders, which are awarded competitively in May of each year.  In the event of there being two equally qualified candidates for an award, additional consideration may be given to those nominating the College as their first or second choice. We also make hardship awards and loans, as well as grants to offset the costs of academic travel and electives. Around one third of our students receive financial support from the College each year.

The College supports two scholarships each year through the University of Cambridge Home Scholarship Scheme. These scholarships are open to PhD applicants in any subject, and MPhil applicants intending to embark on further study. We also consider postgraduate offer-holders for the awards below:
