The Reach Cambridge scholarship essay competition is designed for academically excellent high school students aged between 15 and 17 who would otherwise not be able to attend our summer programs. Please note that this scholarship competition is not for application to the University of Cambridge. Full scholarship: A fully-funded scholarship prize for one of our Spring or Summer Programs in 2019.
Partial scholarship: A partially funded scholarship prize for one of our Spring or Summer Programs in 2019. Please note that both prizes include all those items ordinarily covered by the program fee. They do not include the cost of flights, or other items which are not ordinarily covered by the program fee. What is the essay question and what else will be taken into consideration?
If you had a billion dollars to invest in your country, what would you invest in and why? To craft a good essay requires careful argumentation, clear structure and personality. It is these characteristics that we will look for in judging applicants’ essays. We will also take into account the letter of recommendation supplied by your school and the short video personal statement. To read more on how to write a good essay, visit our blog.
Your school must also write a signed letter of recommendation to be uploaded to your account. This should be written on headed paper, and should outline why you are a good candidate for the scholarship: it should tell us what makes you academically excellent, and it must give us some indication of your financial circumstances. It is a chance for you to tell us a bit about yourself, why you think you are the best scholarship candidate and how a scholarship for a Reach Cambridge program will affect your life. Please note that if you do not complete all these sections of your application, we will not consider your application. Due to the number of applications received, we are unable to notify unsuccessful candidates.
