The Blyth Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Scholarships are among the most valuable awards available in Canada for students wishing to pursue an undergraduate degree. Tenable at any University of Cambridge undergraduate college the scholarships provide full funding for tuition fees, maintenance and travel between Canada and Cambridge for three years.
The scholarships are jointly funded by Blyth Scholars and the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust. The chair of Blyth Scholars, Sam Blyth, is a graduate of the University and has been supporting Canadians at Cambridge for more than ten years. He said: “I am delighted to support undergraduate scholars from Canada attending Cambridge. I had the advantage of a Cambridge education as a young Canadian. These awards are an expression of gratitude, as well as a gift to Canadian scholars who should excel at the University.”
In the fall of 2012, the scholarship committee reviewed all applications and invited shortlisted candidates to Toronto for interviews that were conducted by Canadian alumni of the University and Cambridge admission heads. The approximate value of each scholarship is $150,000 over three years.
Dr. Geoff Parks, Director of Admissions at the University, said: “These students have outstanding ability, but would have not been able to come to Cambridge without the scholarships. They will now be able to benefit from the unique experience offered by our world-class University and be a valuable part of its diverse community.”
The University of Cambridge is one of the leading academic institutions in the world. Affiliates of the University have won more Nobel Prizes than any other institution in the world. The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust was founded in 1982 by the University to support international students from Commonwealth countries.
