Trevor Brown Bursary

In honour of its founding president, the Cambridge Society of Paris annually grants the Trevor Brown Bursary to one or more current students of the University of Cambridge. The Bursary is intended to be a modest contribution of between €250 and €500 towards expenses incurred for carrying out work or research in France pertaining to France or French society.

Members of the Cambridge Society of Paris are enthusiastic to help facilitate Cambridge students coming over to do project work here in France. Applications for the 2024 Bursary have now closed.


Eligibility Criteria:

Students may apply for the Bursary provided they fulfill the following criteria:

  • studies currently being carried out, at undergraduate or graduate level, must be towards the completion of a degree at the University;
  • within the course of these studies, they are carrying out work or a project with a link to France or French society.

The Bursary is open to students of all nationalities, although some students may need to apply for a visa from the French Embassy in London in order to study in France.

Application Details:

The 2024 Bursary is now closed. Applications for the 2025 Bursary will be requested in January 2025. Information about the Trevor Brown Bursary can be obtained from

Grant of the Bursary:

The Bursary Committee of the Cambridge Society of Paris has assessed the applications received before the due date of 5th April 2024 based on the documents and materials received.


A record number of applications were received this year, all of a very high standard. The Bursary Committee had to make some difficult decisions and although 11 Bursaries have been awarded, a small number of applications were not successful.  All applicants have now been informed of the decision taken in their case, and, for those who have been successful, the amount of their award. Congratulations to the successful applicants, and commiserations to the remainder.
