The Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States

The Churchill Scholarship provides funding to American students for a year of Master’s study in science, mathematics, and engineering at the University of Cambridge, based at Churchill College. The Scholarship was set up at the request of Sir Winston Churchill in order to fulfil his vision of US-UK scientific exchange with the goal of advancing science and technology on both sides of the Atlantic, helping to ensure our future prosperity and security.

Many Churchill Scholars describe their year in Cambridge as the best year of their lives. What makes this program so unique?

  • It provides an opportunity for independent research (often leading to publications) that Churchill Scholars will not find again until well into their PhD programs
  • The environment is well balanced between academic work, social life, and extracurriculars
  • Churchill Scholars form friendships with their future colleagues from around the world
  • Churchill is the only college at Cambridge that is focused on STEM subjects
