Cambridge applicants have an exceptional record of securing LECFs and the number of award holders researching in Cambridge has grown steadily:


In recent years, up to 20 awards have been made each year to candidates wishing to carry out research in Cambridge. The great majority are match-funded by the INT and the cost to the INT currently amounts to about £1m per annum.

More than 166 LECFs have been supported by the INT at Cambridge since INT first began providing matching funding in 2007.  

Cambridge has the highest success rate, across all subjects, of any UK University. Here is a snapshot of the total number of awards over the 10-year period 2010-20 made to different UK institutions:
