Scholarships & Bursaries

Each year, MPW Cambridge awards a number of scholarships and bursaries to help fund the fees of gifted and talented students who are likely to gain particular benefit from our academic provision and the more general opportunities the college has to offer. In turn, we expect award recipients not only to contribute to MPW’s reputation for academic success, but also to participate in broader aspects of college life.

There are two types of financial award available: scholarships and bursaries. Scholarships are awarded entirely on academic merit and generally subject to a scholarship interview, whereas bursaries also take account of financial status and are therefore means-tested in accordance with guidelines issued by the Independent Schools’ Bursars Association.

Each year, MPW Cambridge sets a budget for academic awards based partially on anticipated fee income and partially on anticipated income from our Alumni Scheme.

Please contact our Registry ( for details on how to apply for a scholarship or bursary.
