I got an acceptance from Cambridge last week and I'm trying to figure out how to fill the Cambridge Trust Scholarship form right now. I am an international (Canadian) student and I'm confused about 2 things:

1. There's a table called "ANNUAL FINANCIAL GUARANTEE REQUIRED BY COLLEGE" that asks me for 3 things:

University Composition Fee (overseas arts/science)
College fees (undergraduate rate)
Maintenance costs (at rate set by Senior Tutors’ Committee)

It also says that: "NB: Please note that costs are liable to increase in subsequent years. Candidates are requested to take account of likely increases due to inflation and other factors, such as possible changes in exchange rates, when making their financial plans"

I did some research but I was unable to figure out what these 3 things meant.

Is University Composition Fee the tuiton fee that I can find here? https://www.undergraduate.study.cam....-students/fees

Is college fee the fee here (I got in Robinson college)? https://www.robinson.cam.ac.uk/prosp...idence-charges

What is Maintenance Cost, and what is the Senior Tutors' Committee??

What am I supposed to do with the comment about inflation, especially if nobody knows how exchange rates will change?

2. We need to write a 300 word personal statement, but the prompt is super vague. Here is the prompt:

"Please set out your reasons, in not more than 300 words, why you should be considered for a scholarship, mentioning particular awards for which you meet the eligibility criteria. You are encouraged to use the Trust’s Scholarship Search to find all the awards for which you are eligible, see https://www.cambridgetrust.org/scholarships/
There is no need to repeat information provided in the Cambridge On-line Preliminary Application (COPA)."

I qualify for exactly 2 very general scholarships: Cambridge Trust and Cambridge Trust Canada. What should I be looking to put in this personal statement?

Thanks!

Hello,

This is a page for Student Finance related questions so we wouldn't be able to help with your issue. I'd recommend potentially speaking to one of the advisors at the university.

Thanks, Duncan

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
