The Gates Cambridge Class of 2023 has been announced and CDH are delighted to reveal that two Gates Scholars – Laura Sastoque Pabon and Katherine Enright – will be joining our MPhil cohort in Michaelmas Term.
The Gates Cambridge scholarship programme is the University of Cambridge’s flagship international postgraduate scholarship programme, established through a US$210 million donation to the University of Cambridge from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000. This remains the largest single donation to a UK university. Since the first class in 2001, Gates Cambridge has awarded 2,100 scholarships to scholars from 112 countries who represent more than 700 universities globally, and more than 80 academic departments and all 31 Colleges at Cambridge.
This year’s Gates Cambridge Class of 2023 is made up of 77 outstanding new scholars from around the world. It is an absolute honour to have two students – Laura Sastoque Pabon and Katherine Enright – awarded this prestigious scholarship in what is only our second year of the Digital Humanities MPhil.
Laura and Katherine will join Gates Cambridge Scholar Tristan Dot who is part of the Cambridge Digital Humanities community, studying his PhD at the intersection of Machine Learning and Art History in the English Faculty.
