The Cambridge Bursary Scheme

The Cambridge Bursary Scheme offers non-repayable Bursaries of up to £3,500 per year (up to £5,600 for some mature students and care leavers), dependent on household income. There is no limit to the number of bursaries available and you’re automatically considered for a Cambridge Bursary if you’re financially assessed by your student finance authority.  

Payment of the Cambridge Bursary to students takes place 3-4 weeks after the start of each term in 3 equal payments.
