Churchill College

Research studentships for UK students

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust is offering, by competition, one studentship worth up to £15,000 for one year for a UK student wishing to undertake a Master's degree in International Relations or Political History at Churchill College starting in October 2009.

Churchill College is offering, by competition:

one studentship for a UK Ph.D. student in the Arts, who is a graduate of any UK university and wishes to undertake a Ph.D. at Churchill College. This studentship is worth up to £7,500 a year for three years, subject to other funding.

two studentships for UK Ph.D. students in the Sciences or Technology, who are graduates of any UK university and wish to undertake a Ph.D. at Churchill College. These studentships are worth up to £7,500 a year for three years, subject to other funding.

The amount awarded will depend on any other funding awarded to the student by grant-making bodies and other sources. Ph.D. studentships will be renewed annually for up to three years, subject to satisfactory performance.


Churchill College is offering the following scholarships, jointly with the Cambridge Trusts, to non-UK students wishing to undertake a course leading to a Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge and to be a member of the College, starting in October 2009:

Two Gulbenkian studentships in any subject with up to full-funding, subject to financial need.

A Pochobradsky studentship in engineering or chemical engineering, with up to full funding, subject to financial need.

A Duckworth studentship for a student from the Commonwealth, with a preference for a student from Africa, to do some aspect of research in Education.

How to apply

All applicants for any of these awards must apply for admission to the University of Cambridge by submitting a Graduate Admission and Scholarship application form (GRADSAF) to the Board of Graduate Studies by the relevant deadline.

In making awards, preference will be given to those who nominate Churchill as their College of first choice. All awards are conditional on the selected students being admitted as registered graduate students by the Board of Graduate Studies with effect from 1 October 2009.

All candidates are expected to apply for Research Council awards and for the University's Domestic Research Studentships and Millennium scholarships, if eligible.

UK students should also complete an application form which can be downloaded from the College website http://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/admissions/advanced_students and returned to the Tutor for Advanced Students, Dr Barry Kingston, at Churchill College, Storey's Way, Cambridge, CB3 0DS by the end of February 2009. The College will take into account candidates' income from other sources when making awards.

Non-UK students do not have to complete a separate application form but should tick the box seeking funding from the Cambridge Trusts on the Graduate Admissions and Scholarship application form.
