Dear Colleagues,

Please take note of this scholarship available for students from ethnically
Tibetan regions to study at Cambridge University.

*Williams Papworth Studentship (WPS) for Postgraduate Study*

*University of Cambridge*

*Applications for entry October 2020*

Applications are now invited for the Williams Papworth Studentship at the
University of Cambridge. I would be grateful if you would circulate this
notice to people you know who may be interested and eligible for entry to
the University in October 2020.

*Williams Papworth Studentship (WPS) for Postgraduate Study*

The Williams Papworth Studentship supports students from the Tibetan
Plateau or Himalayan region pursuing postgraduate studies at the University
of Cambridge. 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.

The University of Cambridge and its Colleges are global and inclusive.
Students come from all continents and many countries and form a friendly
international community.  A wide range of courses in a variety of
disciplines in Sciences, Arts, Humanities, Business and Social Studies are
offered. For the information needed to make a graduate application please
