The Churchill Scholarship supports one year of postgraduate study in science, engineering, or mathematics at the University of Cambridge.
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. To get a better sense of the experience of being a Churchill Scholar and to learn more about the opportunities for scholars at Cambridge, please see this short video the Churchill Foundation has prepared.
