University of Cambridge announces scholarships for 2014
Lahore, May 5 (Online): Two outstanding students in Pakistan have been awarded 2014 Cambridge 800th Anniversary Scholarships to fund their undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge.
The scholarships have been made possible thanks to funding from the parent organization of Cambridge International Examinations (Cambridge Assessment).
Cambridge 800th Anniversary Scholarships were launched in 2009 to enable students from Pakistan to study at the University of Cambridge without the worry of creating a financial burden for their families. The scholarships provide full funding, covering fees and means-tested maintenance, for undergraduate study at the University of Cambridge.
Michael O’ Sullivan, Chief Executive, Cambridge International Examinations, said: “We are delighted to award our outstanding students with the 2014 Cambridge 800th Anniversary Scholarships. We believe that getting into university is really only the first step and that developing the skills to get on in both work and life is just as important. We wish our new scholars every success as they continue their academic careers and look forward to life beyond university.”
The two places offered by the University of Cambridge are conditional on the students achieving specific grades.
