If you're due to start your course in 2022 you can send in evidence of your parents' pension contributions for the relevant tax year and we will work out if you're owed a bursary top up.

For academic year 2022-23 we need to see evidence of pension contributions made in tax year 5th April 2021 to 4th April 2022.  This is the same year on which your SAAS assessment was made.

You should send in a copy of any official documentation which shows the value of pension contributions made for each parent who made them, such as wage slips (if they show pension contributions) or a statement from your pension scheme provider.

Please email your evidence to

or, if you'd prefer to post copies, please send them, along with a brief note explaining that you wish to be considered for the pension related bursary top up to:

Cambridge Bursary Scheme

Student Service Centre

New Museums Site



We will acknowledge recipt of your evidence and let you know how long it will take to process any top up awarded.  Once the assessment has been done we'll let you know the outcome and how we calculated any award made.
