Williams Papworth Studentship (WPS) for Postgraduate Study

University of Cambridge

Applications for entry October 2019

I am writing to let you know that applications are now invited for the
Williams Papworth Studentship at the University of Cambridge.  Please
circulate this notice to young people you know who may be interested
and eligible for entry to the University in October 2019.

The Williams Papworth Studentship supports students from the Tibetan
Plateau or Himalayan region.  Full or partial funding will normally be
granted for one-year postgraduate study in any discipline.  Although
preference may be given to those ethnically or culturally connected
with Tibet, Nepal or Bhutan, the ability to make a positive and
practical contribution to Himalayan region communities and the wider
world is more important than ethnicity, religion or subject of study.

Cambridge University offers a wide range of courses in Sciences, Arts,
Humanities, Business and Social Studies.  For the information needed
to make a graduate application, applicants should follow the links

Williams Papworth Studentship:

When applying through the online applicant portal it is important to
mention under the 'Funding' section that you wish to be considered for
the WPS. Deadlines for different courses vary.  Please take careful
note of the deadline set for the course of your choice, these are
generally between early December 2018 and early January 2019.  The
application process is clear but complex, and timing is critical.

Cambridge University and its Colleges are global and inclusive.
Students come from all continents and many countries and form a
friendly international community.  Please pass this on to young people
of ability and enthusiasm and encourage them to come forward.  Please
circulate this notice.  Outreach contacts like yourself are essential
for making this opportunity more widely known.
