In collaboration with BP Egypt, the Cambridge Overseas Trust offers a number of scholarships annually to enable graduates of outstanding academic merit to pursue a one year postgraduate study at the prestigious University of Cambridge.
The scholarships are open to citizens of Egypt who already have, or expect to obtain before October 2012, a first class or, exceptionally, a high second class honours degree or its equivalent from a recognised university.
Scholarships are offered for graduates to pursue a one-year postgraduate course of study. The scholarships, tenable for one year, will normally cover the University Composition Fee at the overseas rate, approved College fees, a maintenance allowance sufficient for a single student (no dependants’ allowances will be paid) and a contribution towards a round-trip airfare.
Preference will be given to candidates seeking master’s degrees in petroleum related studies. However, business, economics and development studies will also be considered.
||Successful candidates must sign, before their departure to Cambridge, an enrollment agreement with BP Egypt whereby they will agree to return back, domicile and work in Egypt after their graduation from the University of Cambridge for double the period they studied at the University of Cambridge
||BP holds the right to apply exceptions to the above conditions as the company sees appropriate.
