About the TWF Cambridge Scholarship

The Women’s Foundation Hong Kong Scholarship Scheme, run by the University of Cambridge, supports eligible students who have graduated from a university in Hong Kong and been admitted to the University to study for the MPhil in multi-disciplinary Gender Studies. 

The MPhil provides a variety of intense taught courses and close supervision in undertaking an original research project on gender in subject areas such as Development, Education, Conflict and Violence, Globalisation, Labour Markets, Social Policy, Culture and Antiquity, Representation, Literature, Bio-medical Advances, Human Rights and International Law.

Graduates from the MPhil will emerge as highly desirable candidates for policy, corporate and academic careers.
