Reach Cambridge Scholarship Essay Competition

The Reach Cambridge scholarship essay competition is designed for academically excellent high school students aged between 15 and 17 to attend the two-week academic program at Cambridge. The deadline is on 17th November 2019.

The essay question for the scholarship competition is:

Reach Cambridge Scholarship Essay Competition: “What is the primary issue facing society today and what can we do to effect positive change in this area?”

The students must complete the essays independently – they must be original, non-plagiarised work.

The prizes provide, without charge, all those items ordinarily covered by the program fee, including accommodation, all excursions, lectures, theatre trips, workshops and tuition, and half board meals.

The programs will take place in the spring and the summer of 2020.

Main criteria

  • Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 17 on 17th November 2019, and currently studying at high school;
  • A letter of recommendation from a member of staff at your school must be sent to scholarship@reachcambridge.com directly, using an official school email address;
  • A short (up to three minutes long) video should be submitted in form of a YouTube link as your personal statement. It is a chance for you to tell a bit about yourself, why do you think you are the best scholarship candidate and how would coming to Reach Cambridge affect your life.
