Christ’s College is committed to attracting the brightest students regardless of their financial background.
An average undergraduate on a 3 year course will graduate having spent £53,250 on their education. This then has an impact on future career plans, and means that the decision to undertake further study is more difficult
The Student Support Fund ensures the College can continue to offer assistance to those who face financial difficulty as a result of their studies.
So far in this academic year around £300,000 has been awarded to undergraduates and £356,000 to graduates, ranging from bursaries of a few thousand pounds to scholarships worth in excess of £20,000. We also provide book grants, travels grants, grants for graduate students to attend and speak at conferences, support for students with disabilities, and support for students who find themselves in unexpected hardship.
We have an outreach and access programme for admissions, seeking to encourage and inspire applications from those who would not otherwise consider Cambridge. We aim to support these students if they are successful in gaining a place at Christ's, and indeed all students in need, whatever their background and route to Christ's.
For further information about this fund, please contact Catherine Twilley, Development Director.
"The bursary has made a great difference to my time in Cambridge and has enabled me to open doors that otherwise would have remained firmly closed."
