Eliahou Dangoor Scholarships
Talented students studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects at the leading universities in the UK can now benefit from a £1,000 Eliahou Dangoor Scholarship, thanks to a donation by Dr Naim Dangoor. Dr Dangoor has said that these scholarships, named in honour of his father, are his way of thanking the country that gave him refuge after he left Iraq in the 1960s.
The University of Cambridge has been awarded 44 bursaries under the scheme for students starting the following undergraduate science courses or studying a PGCE in a science discipline in 2012-13:
- Computer Science
- Natural Sciences.
- Medical and Veterinary Sciences
The £1,000 scholarships are available to UK-domiciled students in their first-year only, and scholarship recipients will be selected from eligible Cambridge Bursary award-holders on arrival in Cambridge. With a Cambridge Bursary of up to £3,500, this means that you may receive up to £4,500 of support in your first year. To be considered for the Eliahou Dangoor Scholarship you should apply for a Cambridge Bursary in the normal way. There is no additional application form that needs to be completed.
