Have you looked at:
https://www.ox.ac.uk/students/fees-f.../search?wssl=1

By the way, undergrad funding for Internationals at Cambridge is fairly rare.

I thought the Trust scholarship depended on academics and also financial situation? How rare is it usually?

Yes correct, and I don't recall seeing stats on success rates. Let's have a look... you can see all those awarded here (nearly 300 awards this year so far out of about 400 in total).
https://www.cambridgetrust.org/scholars/awards/
But this includes postgrad too. Looking through the list it seems about 1 in 10 are for undergrads, so that will be about 40 in total.

There's about 500 internationals admitted per year, so that's less than 1 in 10 international undergrads being awarded a Cambridge scholarship. (Although that's actually a bit higher than I first thought )

Edit: actually let me just check something with Peterhouse Admissions ... are Cambridge Trust Scholarships applied for and awarded on a yearly basis? So are the 40 or so awarded this year just for new undergrads or include returning students?

Scholarships are awarded for the entire length of a course, unless the recipient's circumstances change. Most applications are unfortuantely unsuccessful and awards are made on the basis of academic ability and financial circumstances.

OP: I can't work out where in the world you are from but do look into other sources of funding, e.g. the Jardine Foundation.

Thanks for confirming Oh, and presumably they aren't all full awards?
