The Omorovicza Bursary is awarded to a student from Hungary who has been admitted to Caius to study for an undergraduate degree in the normal way. Recipients of this bursary will be selected from those that apply for bursarial support from the Cambridge Trusts (see below) and no additional application is required. In the case that there is no eligible student from Hungary then the bursary will be awarded to a Caius home/EU student.

Additionally, the College may contribute toward the financial support of those EU and overseas students who are admitted to Caius and who also receive a partial award from the Cambridge Trusts. Awards are discretionary and all applicants who apply to the Trusts will be considered without the need for separate application.

Details of all of these scholarships are available from the Caius Admissions Office (admissions@cai.cam.ac.uk).
