    What sort of merit or financial need is (unofficially) required in order to receive one of the 11 Trinity Overseas Bursaries at the Uni of Cambridge? What sort of students receive these scholarships? Any sort of information would be very helpful please.

    Thank you

    It's needs-based, and only offered to offer holders. So you need to get the offer first (that would be the primary "merit" part of the assessment).

    Are you sure that it is need-based?? (sources)
    Because it would seem as though some additional merit is required beyond the "average" oxbridge student.

    "TRINITY OVERSEAS BURSARIES (OVERSEAS STUDENTS)
    The College offers eleven Trinity Overseas Bursaries per year. These are means-tested and cover up to the full cost of fees and maintenance. In some cases an Overseas Bursary may be held jointly with a bursary awarded by one of the Cambridge Trusts.

    APPLYING FOR BURSARIES
    Application forms for the Cambridge Trusts and the Trinity Overseas Bursaries are sent to offer-holders once offers of places have been made. If you return the forms you will automatically be considered for all awards for which you are eligible. Application forms for Cambridge Bursaries are sent to Home students who request them after they come into residence."
