Funding for the Cultural Agreements is gathered into a single scholarship pool for both the long-term scholarships and for the Danish summer language courses. The twenty-three countries gathered into the same funding pool are not guaranteed an exact number of scholarships. China, Japan, Israel, Egypt, and Russia, however, are an exception and each maintain a separate funding pool. When applications are reviewed, the Danish Agency for Universities and Internationalisation carries out an individual assessment based on certain selection criteria, detailed below. 

Selection Criteria for Long-Term Study Scholarships

In order to ensure that the most qualified candidates are nominated for a scholarship under the Cultural Agreements, the scholarship committee has defined a set of criteria for the assessment of applicants. While the successful candidate does not necessarily need to meet all criteria, applicants who meet several criteria will have a better standing in the selection process than applicants who do not.
Please note that only master’s students, PhD students, and young research scientists can apply for scholarships. However, for studies in Danish language and literaturebachelor’s level students can apply if they have studied Danish language for two years prior to when they wish to start their stay in Denmark.
In the selection process, the Danish Agency for Universities and Internationalisation will give priority to candidates:
    • Who motivate their choice of a specific research programme or field of study through its relation to Danish language, culture or other Danish areas of expertise. Successful applicants will describe the Danish dimension in their choice of studies or research when applying in fields such as: design, music, architecture, welfare, environmental studies, etc.
    • Who are nominated by a lecturer who teaches Danish in their home country. Applicants should include a reference from the lecturer in their application.
    • Who study Danish or Scandinavian languages and literature.
    • Who refer to an internationally acclaimed lecturer at the desired Danish host institution with whom they would like to study.
    • Who have contacted the desired Danish host university and received an invitation from a lecturer to conduct studies or research there.
    • Who study at a partner university or institution of the desired Danish host university.
Please note you are ineligible for a scholarship if:
    • You are already enrolled or planning to enroll in a full degree, joint degree, or double degree programme in Denmark. Full, joint, and double degree students are not considered exchange students and are ineligible for scholarships.
    • You are not currently enrolled in, or conducting research at, an institution of higher education in your home country.
    • You intend to pursue studies at a bachelor’s level during your stay in Denmark in fields other than Danish language and literature.

Standard applications (via the Board of Graduate Studies)

All applicants apply simultaneously for admission as a graduate student to the University of Cambridge and a Gates Cambridge Scholarship using the one application pack.

To be considered for graduate admission and a Gates Cambridge Scholarship most applicants will need to submit all of the following documents to the Board of Graduate Studies by the relevant deadline:

  • GRADSAF application form
  • Academic transcripts
  • 2 academic references
  • 1 personal reference
  • English language test scores if your first language is not English
  • Any other documents required for admission to the course – e.g. research proposal, example of written work etc. (see the individual department/course website for details)

See the How to Apply section of the Graduate Studies prospectus for further details.

Interview Process

All candidates shortlisted for a Gates Cambridge Scholarship attend a 20 minute interview.
The interviews may be in person, by Skype or by telephone and are conducted by a panel of four members (a representative of the Trust, two academics and a Gates Cambridge alum) who are knowledgeable in a general way about the candidate’s field of study.

Candidates are asked about their work: why it excites them; what they know about the broader field of which it is part; why it is important; why coming to Cambridge will help them with their research or build on their earlier educational experiences. Also, do they understand that higher education brings privilege and opens opportunity for the future; what do they intend to do with the benefits they’ve had; how do they see themselves contributing in time. Candidates may also be asked questions of a probing intellectual or ethical dimension, to which there are no ‘right’ answers.

Interviews for US citizens normally residing in the USA are held in the USA at the beginning of February for entry in the following October. Interviews have been held in Annapolis, MD and in New York City in the past; in early February 2012 the interviews will be held in San Francisco, CA. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted before the Christmas break. Most candidates interview in person, but candidates who cannot attend an in person interview may interview by Skype or telephone.

Interviews for citizens of all countries other than the USA (except the United Kingdom) and US citizens normally residing outside of the USA are held in Cambridge in late March. About half of these candidates interview in person, while the other half interview by Skype or telephone (given their location). Shortlisted candidates will be contacted in early March.

All candidates are informed of the results of their interview within a week.

Application deadline: 2 December

Applicants should submit their application no later than midnight (UK time). The Trust cannot guarantee that applications submitted after the deadlines will be considered.
