    PhD in archaeology im waiting for the central funding results🍀 Are you funded by the project that you will be a part of or by an external funding? Very lucky🍀
    Ah cool! I'm doing a PhD in Neuroscience/Stem cell biology.. My PI had funding for a student, so I had funding before I even applied to Cambridge - definitely lucky!

    No, I'm from Ireland, though I was working in a different lab in Cambridge during the summer to get a feel for the place. I actually have no idea if many people applied for the place, I've convinced myself I likely only got it because noone else applied!

    I have been constantly checking my email since last week hoping for an interview invite. I know that the chances are very slim but I cannot help it.

    Congrats to all of you who got shortlisted! Out of curiosity, how many Gates interviewees get the scholarship? The website strongly emphasizes the brutal competition to reach the scholarship stage.

    35 Americans were accepted this year and 55 international students will get the scholarship.

    Degree: PhD in Philosophy
    Applied: 4th December 2017
    Conditional offer made: 14th February 2018
    College: Girton (1st preference and I taught at a secondary school named after Girton so I'm stoked about the offer!)
    Funding: Invited to interview for Gates (!!!) and nominated by my Faculty for the central Cambridge funding competitions

    Has anyone been offered the Cambridge International Scholarship or know the chances of being offered one if you're offered a Gates interview? I know the criteria is different but I'm hoping there's some cross over?? I've heard the CIS offers are starting to go out via email too but nothing in my inbox yet :erm:
