The Churchill Scholarship from the Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States supports American students to study at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The Churchill Scholarship is for one year of study at the University of Cambridge for an MPhil (Master of Philosophy) or MASt (Master of Advanced Study). The standard MPhil is a research degree that entails full-time research in a lab and culminates in a thesis and a viva (an oral examination). The MASt is a taught course comprised of lectures and written examinations. Applicants must be citizens of the USA.

The Foundation provides 18 scholarships per year, comprising 16 Churchill Scholarships in science, mathematics, and engineering, and two Kanders Churchill Scholarships in science policy. It is for one year of Master’s study (courses run between 9 and 12 months). The award covers tuition, roundtrip airfare to the UK, visa fees and health surcharge, and a stipend that is set 5% higher than the UK Research Council standard. Recipients are eligible to apply for a $4,000 special research grant. The total value is around $65,000.

Applicants are nominated by their university. Potential applicants should first contact the scholarship office at their undergraduate institution.

Nomination deadline is November 1, 2024.
