The Essay Prize will not run in 2024.
Please see below for further details, and note that we can only accept submissions from students at a school in the UK due to the capacity limits of our judging Fellows.
The Robinson College Essay Prize is open to all students in Year 12 (Lower Sixth, or equivalent; or Year 13 students who will be taking a Gap Year) at a school in the UK during the 2021-22 academic year. It is designed to give students the opportunity to develop and showcase their independent study and writing skills. By creating the opportunity for students to experience the type of work that they might be expected to do at Cambridge, we hope to encourage inquisitive and industrious students from all backgrounds to apply to the university – and hopefully to Robinson College.
