The Gates Cambridge scholarship programme, which this year celebrates
its 20th anniversary, is the University of Cambridge’s leading
international postgraduate scholarship programme.

It was established through a US$210 million donation to the University
of Cambridge from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000; this
remains the largest single donation to a UK university. Since the first
class in 2001, Gates Cambridge has awarded over 2,000 scholarships to
scholars from 111 countries who represent more than 600 universities
globally and more than 80 academic departments at Cambridge.
