Keiler Totz is still a little in shock. Even though he submitted a very strong application to the Blyth Cambridge Commonwealth Trust scholarship competition, he didn’t actually think he would win the funding to study biomedical engineering at one the best universities in the world. In the video below, Keiler talks about when he first heard he had won a full scholarship to Cambridge and how he navigated the application process.
The Blyth Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Scholarships are among the most valuable awards available in Canada for students wishing to pursue an undergraduate degree. Tenable at any University of Cambridge undergraduate college, the scholarships provide full funding for tuition fees, maintenance and travel between Canada and Cambridge for three years. Two winners are named each year.
The chair of Blyth Scholars, Sam Blyth, is a graduate of the University and has been supporting Canadians at Cambridge for more than ten years. “I am delighted to support undergraduate scholars from Canada attending Cambridge,” he says. “I had the advantage of a Cambridge education as a young Canadian. These awards are an expression of gratitude, as well as a gift to Canadian scholars who should excel at the University.”
The University of Cambridge is one of the leading academic institutions in the world. Affiliates of the University have won more Nobel Prizes than any other institution in the world. The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust was founded in 1982 by the University to support international students from Commonwealth countries.
