Gates Cambridge Scholarship: Resources for JHU applicants

If you are planning to apply for a 2023 Gates Cambridge Scholarship, the JHU National Fellowships Program is here to help! We can offer advice on how to identify a strong fit with a program at Cambridge and select the appropriate recommenders to support your application, plus—and most important—provide feedback on your written materials.

Self-enroll on our Blackboard site for UK/Ireland Scholarship Applicants to get access to resources and to submit your draft application essays for feedback. You can submit drafts for any or all of the following Wednesday deadlines and receive feedback within about a week:

  • June 29
  • July 20
  • Aug. 10
  • Aug. 31
  • Sept. 21

The final application deadline will be in mid-October.
