The Reach Cambridge scholarship essay competition offers fully funded as well as partial scholarships to outstanding high school students in order to attend its programs. Specifically designed for academically excellent high school students between the age of 15 and 17 years, this program offers them financial aids without which they may not be able to attend the programs.

Reach Cambridge has been successfully running summer schools and study programs in Cambridge since 2005. It is a private company that specializes in study courses and is entirely independent of the University of Cambridge. The program offered by the organization nurtures individuals who are seeking to attend Cambridge University for studies after high school.

Reach Cambridge determines the individuals for scholarships as to how they address the essay question. For 2020, the essay question for the scholarship competition is:

“What is the primary issue facing society today and what can we do to effect positive change in this area?”

Fully Funded Reach Cambridge Scholarship

The Reach Cambridge offers fully funded as well as partially funded scholarships based on the essay competition. The full scholarship covers the program fee for one of the 2-week Programs. For 2020, there are altogether 9 full scholarships available. Three scholarships are available for the summer session while up to six scholarships are available for the spring programs.

Further, a partial scholarship includes partial coverage (50%) of the program fee for one of the 2-week Programs in either Spring or Summer 2020.

Also, candidates should note that the scholarships do not include the cost of flights, or other items not ordinarily covered by the program fee.
