If you are offered a place at Emmanuel you will need to obtain funding to cover both your fees and your living expenses. Estimates for these can be found here
Various awards and bursaries are available and are awarded in conjunction with the Cambridge University awards (e.g. CHESS or CISS) i.e. students who are highly ranked in the University competitions but narrowly miss out on being funded may be given a College award. All applicants who hold an offer of a place at the College will be considered for these awards unless they tick the box on the Graduate Application Form indicating that they do not wish to apply for funding. Decisions are communicated in May, after the Cambridge University Awards (e.g. CHESS or CISS) have been announced.
In the current academic year we made awards (part or full awards) to 20 students, totalling more than £200,000.
Among those available are: one full-cost Derek Brewer Ph.D. studentship (or more than one part-cost studentship) and two M.Phil. studentships. One or more part-cost Benson & Carslaw Scholarships (maximum award £4,000 per year) will be offered each year to students from Commonwealth countries.
Full-cost studentships only cover home or EU (not overseas) fees and the Ph.D. studentship is primarily intended for home or EU students, although overseas applicants may be considered if there are no suitable home or EU applicants.
Once you are here the College is able to help with the costs of attending conferences and fieldwork. Graduates are able to apply for help from College hardship funds on the same basis as undergraduates
