About the Scholarship
The Churchill Scholarship supports one year of postgraduate study in science, engineering, or mathematics at the University of Cambridge. The Scholarship covers all University and College fees, provides a living and travel budget, and offers the possibility of a Special Research Grant. Science programs are entirely research degrees with a thesis and oral examination, and applicants should find appropriate laboratory placement before applying. Engineering programs include two terms of courses, and a third research term concluding with a thesis and oral examination. Mathematics and theoretical physics programs are entirely course based and include final written examinations.
Selection criteria include exceptional academic talent and achievement, especially in the major field, capacity for research and independent work, and strong personal qualities.
University of Cambridge departments and programs are often organized quite differently than those in the United States. For information on studying STEM at Cambridge and guidance on finding the appropriate department, please see this document.
